A 29-year-old New Orleans man will spend the next 58 years in prison for aggravated battery, robbery, carjacking, purse snatching and other charges arising from an incident last June.
Felton Hurst has a long criminal record.
According to police, Hurst went to a bingo parlor, where he approached an Avoyelles Parish mother and daughter.
He punched the mother in the face, grabbed some of their belongings and tried to leave in their vehicle, running the mother over with the car.
Police Chief James Hay was working at the bingo hall at the time and shot out the tires of the car as Hurst tried to drive away.
