Man booked into jail after violent tirade
NAPOLEONVILLE - A man was booked into jail Monday after a violent tirade where a deputy was injured.
Chad Butler, 36, was booked on a list of charges including battery, resisting an officer with force, criminal damage to property, and reckless operation. Deputies said a woman reported Butler earlier in the day for damaging her vehicle and sending threatening messages to her phone.
When deputies went to question him, he was not home and shortly after the woman called and said he was following her to work and smashed his vehicle into hers.
Eventually, deputies found Butler and he was not cooperative, the Assumption Parish Sheriff's Office said in a news release. He refused commands from deputies and fought with them when they tried to place him under arrest, they said. A State Trooper assisted and the group was able to get Butler to jail but not before he slightly injured one of the deputies.
The extent of the injuries was not immediately clear, but the sheriff's office said the deputy was evaluated at the hospital.
Butler was booked into jail and no bond had been set as of this post.
