BIENVILLE PARISH, La. (KSLA) - A man is waiting behind bars, facing several charges following a chase on August 1.
Phillip A. Page, 39, of Bienville is charged with aggravated flight from an officer, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Authorities already had two warrants for Page charging him with second-degree kidnapping and aggravated second-degree battery stemming from an incident on July 8, 2022
BPSO says Page was eluding deputies until his capture on Aug. 1. Reportedly Page said that if he was confronted by law enforcement “things would get bloody.”
Page was located on Madden Hill Creek Road, where he then fled to a home on Watts Road where he was then confronted by deputies.
The pickup then left the roadway and crashed out behind the Jamestown Post Office.
Deputies surrounded Page’s pickup and noticed he was in possession of a long gun. For the next two hours, deputies maintained cover while giving Page commands to surrender. Eventually, he surrendered to deputies.
Page is currently booked into the Bienville Parish Jail pending a 72-hour hearing.
