Bossier Sheriff Larry Deen says a Haughton man was arrested late Friday night after trying to elude officers.
Deputies were called to a home in the 1700 block of Wafer Road in reference to an argument between a girlfriend and boyfriend. When officers arrive, both had left in a pickup truck. While deputies were still there, the truck returned, and the driver bailed out of the vehicle and took off on foot.
Once the driver, 51-year old Kirk Patrick Reedy, was caught, he began to curse and yell at deputies, telling them that he would burn both of their houses down after he got out of jail. Nearby witnesses heard the statements. Reedy was arrested and taken to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility for booking.
While on the way to the jail, Reedy began spitting through the screen despite being told to stop. Leg restraints had to be placed on Reedy to keep him from kicking the cage and the windows of the patrol unit.
Reedy was charged with driving under suspension, resisting an officer, two counts of public intimidation, disturbing the peace: language, and two counts of battery of an officer. His bond is set at $36,550.
