SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - A man faces multiple charges after Caddo sheriff’s deputies say he ran away from them during a traffic stop in Shreveport.
Deandre Bishop, 24, was pulled over for allegedly driving faster than 80 miles per hour on Interstate 49.
He is charged with speeding, resisting arrest, possession of a firearm with more than 14 grams of marijuana, possession of Schedule I Controlled Dangerous Substance with intent to distribute.
Authorities say the driver exited onto Kings Highway and made a U-turn into the McDonald’s parking lot, where the deputy directed him to exit the vehicle.
When he got out, a foot chase with the deputy ensued.
The deputy used a taser to try to stop him, but he continued to run until he fell off a curb, according to officials.
The deputy was then able to secure the man until backup arrived.
Bishop is being treated at an area hospital.
