Fight with bondsman lands man in prison

A man wanted for allegedly trying to kill a bail bondsman last September was arrested Tuesday and booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison, court documents say.

The incident occurred Sept. 22, at 4900 Paige St., when the bail bondsman tried to take Jackie Jackson, 34, into custody, an arrest warrant says.

With a handcuff on his left wrist, Jackson grabbed the bail bondman’s gun and tried to point it at his chest, the warrant says. The bail bondsman ejected the loaded magazine from the gun during a struggle, leaving one bullet in the chamber, the warrant says.

The weapon then fired into the ground and no one was hit, the warrant says.

Jackson, 5766 Peerless St., was booked into Parish Prison on a count of attempted second-degree murder.

The fire, which caused $9,000 in total damage, also burned part of the ex-girlfriend’s apartment, the warrant says.

Williams, who suffered burns on his hand and arm, told officers he started the fire, the warrant says.

Williams, 5422 Sumrall Drive, was booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on one count each of aggravated arson, simple trespassing and terrorizing.

Pop-A-Lock holdup suspect, 18, arrested

Two Pop-A-Lock workers were called to unlock a car at 8820 Greenwell Springs Road, the warrant says.

While at that location, the victims were approached by two gunmen, the warrant says.

The gunmen stole money, cellphones, tools and other property from the victims and ran away, the warrant says.

The warrant does not say if the gunmen were the ones who made the call to Pop-A-Lock.

Collin Johnson had some of the stolen items in his possession on Aug. 13 and the victims also identified him in a photo lineup as a robber, according to the warrant, which does not identify other suspects.
