3 arrested in chaotic police pursuit that ended on Siegen Lane
BATON ROUGE - Louisiana State Police have arrested three men tied to a chaotic Saturday morning high-speed pursuit involving a stolen vehicle whose driver allegedly hit three other vehicles before finally crashing on Siegen Lane.
Authorities say Rogerald Conway, Lance Collins, and Deshawn Scott were arrested in connection with the chase.
According to arrest records, troopers spotted Conway driving a stolen vehicle with a Texas license plate along I-10 West while Collins and Scott were with him as passengers. When authorities attempted to get Conway to pull over, he began accelerating, at times up to 120 mph, and ran multiple cars off the road in an effort to dodge authorities.
Conway then collided with several other vehicles but kept going until he crashed the vehicle a final time at a busy shopping center along Siegen Lane and Reitz Avenue. Conway and his two accomplices then jumped out of the wrecked vehicle, dumped their weapons, and ran on foot. They were apprehended by troopers shortly thereafter.
Authorities say weapons were recovered from an area where the suspects fled on foot and all three were arrested on multiple charges. The East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office and the Baton Rouge Police Department assisted LSP in this incident.
Conway's charges include illegal possession of stolen things, flight from officers, and resisting arrest. Collins was arrested on charges that include resisting an officer and possession of a firearm, while Scott was arrested for hit and run and illegal possession of stolen things.
All three were booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison. There did not appear to be any serious injuries associated with the crashes.
