Police chase from Assumption Parish to Gonzales leads to one arrest

According to police, Keifer Andrew Jones, of Belle Rose, Louisiana, committed a traffic violation on LA 308, which led to a pursuit through Donaldsonville and over the Sunshine Bridge to I-10 Sorrento before the chase was stopped near the LA 44/I-10 exit in Gonzales. Jones fled on foot and was captured a short time later.
A K-9 unit detected controlled dangerous substances in the car, which led to a quantity of hydrocodone being seized.

He was then transferred to Assumption Parish Detention Center with charges including aggravated flight from an officer, possession of hydrocodone, resisting an officer, and speeding.
