A Plain Dealing man is behind bars after trying to escape from the back of a deputy’s vehicle by kicking out the passenger window.
Craigory C. King, 29, was involved in an argument with his live-in girlfriend about 3 a.m. Monday morning. When a Plain Dealing officer and Bossier deputy arrived on scene to investigate a family trouble complaint, they could hear King yelling from outside the house, loud enough where it could be heard several houses down.
When the deputy contacted King, he smelled a strong odor of alcohol. The deputy asked him if he had any weapons on him, and King replied, “No, but I do have some marijuana in my front right pocket of my pants.” The deputy arrested King after he found a small baggie of marijuana in his pocket, handcuffed him and put King in the backseat of his patrol car.
While the deputy was getting more information from the victim, King kicked out the passenger side window from inside of the car, causing about $650 in damage, and ran from the scene. The deputy searched for King, but could not find him. K-9 units with the sheriff’s department joined the search for King, who was soon found hiding nearby in an abandoned car, still handcuffed.
King was charged with possession of marijuana, felony property damage, simple escape, theft and disturbing the peace (drunk). The Plain Dealing police officer took King to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility for booking; his bond is pending.
