CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Man arrested after running naked from police in casino
BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) - The suspect in a naked rampage at a Bossier City casino now is out of the hospital and in jail.
Terrence James Roquemore, 24, of DeBerry, Texas, was booked Thursday morning on charges of aggravated battery, aggravated assault on a police officer, battery of a police officer, resisting an officer with force, disturbing the peace/drunk and obscenity.
Police were called to DiamondJacks Casino & Hotel at 11:40 p.m. Tuesday about a naked, disorderly man who refused to leave.
The man was running around in an excited state and refused to comply with repeated orders from officers, authorities said.
An officer used a chemical spray in an attempt to subdue him after he allegedly took an aggressive stance, according to a release from Bossier City police spokesman Mark Natale.
The spray reportedly had no effect. That's when police say Roquemore began to throw chairs and hit an officer.
Non-lethal bean bag rounds then were used and Roquemore subsequently was taken into custody.
He was taken to a Shreveport hospital.
A woman who was there during the incident reported a medical complaint due to a residual effect from the chemical spray. She was taken to a Shreveport hospital for treatment.
