Charges added to man who pulled gun on officer, police say

by Minden Press-Herald


An additional charge has been added to the list of a man who reportedly pulled a gun on a Minden police officer.

LaQuincy D. Warren, 29, of the 600 block of Cherry Street, was charged Friday, Aug. 28, on a warrant of illegal possession of a stolen firearm. Bond was set at $20,000.

Minden Police Chief Steve Cropper says the warrant was served at Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center, where Warren remains incarcerated. Warren is accused of pulling a gun on Sgt. Ryan Barnette Thursday, Aug. 13 while fleeing.

“At the time of his initial arrest, one of the weapons we discovered was stolen,” Cropper said.

“Apparently on the second one, a guy had gone out of town and come back in and discovered that his vehicle had been gone through and was missing a firearm. It turned out to be the second firearm Mr. Warren had on him.”

Warren was arrested Aug. 13, on charges of convicted felon in possession of a firearm, illegal carrying of a weapon, aggravated assault with a firearm on a police officer, possession of Schedule I CDS (synthetic marijuana), unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling, resisting an officer by flight and possession of a firearm in the presence of a CDS.

Barnette responded to call in the Fort Street area regarding a suspicious person. When he saw him, Cropper said, Warren fled on foot.

“When Warren saw the second officer (Officer First Class Chris Hammontree), apparently he turned and began fleeing again on foot,” he said following the initial arrest. “He ended up running into a person’s house, not belonging to him or a relative, just to get away from the officers.”

Cropper says while Warren was fleeing, he stopped and pulled a gun from his waistband and pointed it at Barnette.

Warren ran out of the house, Cropper says, and eventually Barnette and Hammontree caught up to him and placed him under arrest.

Cropper says Warren has a lengthy criminal history.
