IBERVILLE PARISH - A man who evaded Baton Rouge Police Friday was captured by Iberville Sheriff's deputies Sunday, according to BRPD Cpl. Tommy Stubbs.
The pursuit began Friday night when officers tried to stop a car. The driver, Louis Northern, failed to stop and headed west on I-10.
Eventually, Northern exited in Iberville Parish and made his way into West Baton Rouge where he abandoned the car in a field near Hwy. 413 and Hwy. 76.
Into early Saturday morning, authorities were using helicopters and manpower to locate Northern.
Northern will be expedited to Baton Rouge sometime early this week, according to Stubbs.
