NAPOLEONVILLE, LA (WAFB) -
52-year-old man is facing a slew of charges, including his fifth DWI, after
leading authorities on a high-speed chase that spanned three parishes Thursday.
Assumption Parish Sheriff's Office said Marty Jamison Sr. of Napoleonville
drove at speeds over 100 mph while fleeing from deputies who were trying to
pull him over.
booked into the Assumption Parish Detention Center on the following charges:
DWI 5th offense
assault with a motor vehicle upon a peace officer
flight from an officer
criminal damage to property
vehicle while under suspension for prior DWI
left of center
Stop sign violations
No turn signals
control signals (2 counts)
must yield at railroad crossings
not been set.
Mike Waguespack said one of his deputies on a routine patrol got behind a car
doing 30 mph in a 55 mph zone. He added after seeing the car cross the center
line near LA 308 and LA 70 Spur in Paincourtville the deputy turned on his
flashing lights to stop the car.
to reports, the driver sped up to about 90 mph. Authorities said he blew through
the Bertrandville area, eventually made it back onto LA 70 and headed into
Ascension Parish. They added in addition to the speed, he committed several
other traffic violations.
said Jamison then headed north on LA 1 at speeds over 100 mph and went into
Iberville Parish, where he finally slowed down and pulled onto the shoulder.
However, instead of stopping, officials said he made a u-turn. One of the
deputies that had been chasing him tried to box him in, but investigators said
Jamison rammed the passenger side of the patrol unit.
said at that point, the deputy jumped out of his car and fired three rounds
into one of the suspect's tires. He added the suspect's car soon stopped and
Jamison was taken into custody. He reported the arresting deputies smelled
alcohol on Jamison's breath and saw an open beer bottle in the car. According
to a news release, the deputies also found a gun in a paper bag in the vehicle.
noted Jamison has had two recent DWI arrests and a possession of cocaine arrest
pending in court from Oct. 8, 2012 and Jan. 20, 2013.
