Man who shot at deputies during pursuit faces another charge, bond set over $3 million
LAFOURCHE- A man who fired rounds at deputies during a chase last week in Cut Off will now face additional charges.
Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre says a warrant was obtained for 39-year-old Daniel Borne when he missed a jury duty trial last Tuesday. He was also facing charges for burglary, theft, drug possession, DWI, and traffic violations.
That afternoon, deputies were investigating a case on East 58th St. wherein Borne stole a truck and a motorcycle.
Authorities say Borne returned to East 58th Street, then fled from deputies when they tried to conduct a traffic stop. While driving, he began shooting at them. He was also holding a passenger in the vehicle against their will.
The pursuit began around LA Hwy. 308 toward Larose and continued along LA Hwy. 3235 toward Galliano. Borne ran out of gas and began to flee on foot. He didn't get far before deputies caught him and booked him into custody.
Deputies have now learned that the firearm Borne was using was stolen from another Cut Off resident. The stolen vehicle had bullet holes in the tailgate. Bullet holes were also found at a business in Galliano.
Borne has been booked into the Lafourche Parish Detention Center in Thibodaux for the following:
-Four counts of Attempted First Degree Murder of a Peace Officer
-Aggravated Flight from an Officer
-Aggravated Criminal Damage to Property
-Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon
-Illegal Use of Weapons
-Two counts of Theft of a Motor Vehicle
-Eight counts of Contempt of Court
-Theft of a Firearm
His total bond is now set at $3,435,000.
