Sheriff: Man arrested for ramming vehicle, fighting with deputies

ASCENSION PARISH, LA (WAFB) - Deputies with the Assumption Parish Sheriff's Office were called around 6 a.m. about damage done to a vehicle windshield. They learned 36-year-old Chad Butler of Napoleonville was accused of sending threats and text messages Monday morning and Sunday night.

Deputies tried to find Butler at his house, but about that time, the complainant called back saying she was on her way to work and Butler was behind her trying to hit her vehicle.

Officials say the complainant's vehicle was hit twice with Butler's vehicle, then he turned around and was headed towards Bertrandville.

Deputies found Butler's vehicle, made a traffic stop and tried to take him into custody. Reports say he refused commands from deputies and when they tried to arrest him, he actively resisted and fought with the deputies.

A Louisiana State Police trooper arrived on scene and assisted with restraining Butler.

Butler was booked in the Assumption Parish Detention Center for two counts of aggravated battery, resisting an officer with force, simple criminal damage to property, violation of protective order, and reckless operation of a vehicle.

His bond has not been set.
