Baton Rouge police on Wednesday arrested a man accused of drinking while driving, slamming into a metal pole and “trapping” an “officer in the cuffs” when he tried to arrest him, according to an arrest document.

Jackson, who does not have a valid driver’s license, put debris from the crash in his trunk. Officers found skid marks in the woman’s front yard and two open containers of alcohol in Jackson’s car, police said.

But when officers tried to handcuff him at a nearby police station, Jackson acted up.

“While officers were attempting to place the defendant back in affiant’s vehicle, (Jackson) quickly spun around on an officer removing restraints, trapping the officer in the cuffs, then forcing the officer against a desk, where the officer sustained a laceration to his arm,” Jackson’s arrest document says.

The document does not say how the officers gained control of Jackson.

Jackson told the officers several times that he would sue them and have them fired, the arrest document said.

Jackson, 11060 Avenue D St., Baton Rouge, was booked Wednesday into Parish Prison on counts of drinking in a motor vehicle, careless operation, obstruction of justice, driving without a license, resisting an officer with force or violence and public intimidation.

He was released Friday after posting a $8,100 bond, booking records show.

Editor’s note: This brief was edited on Dec. 27. It originally said that Jackson handcuffed the officer. Baton Rouge police spokeswoman Sgt. Mary Ann Godawa said the officer was not handcuffed, and that being “trapped” in handcuffs, as Jackson’s arrest document states, is not the same as being handcuffed. Godawa said the fingers on one of the officer’s hands were trapped in the handcuffs. The Advocate changed the story and quoted the arrest affidavit.

Suspect sought in drug deal shooting death

Baton Rouge police are searching for a man accused in a parking-lot shooting death fueled by a drug deal.

Aljerard Warner, 22, is wanted on a count of first-degree murder in the death of Derrell Marquis Haynes, 19, Baton Rouge police spokesman Cpl. L’Jean McKneely said Friday in a news release.

Police have issued an arrest warrant on first-degree murder for Warner, accused of shooting Haynes in the chest during the drug deal Tuesday night in the parking lot of the Piggly Wiggly on Choctaw Drive and 38th Street, the release says.

Warner, 3826 Choctaw Road, Brusly, and Haynes, 6114 Stoneview Ave., were dealing about 7:45 p.m. when Haynes was shot in the chest.

A friend drove Haynes to a hospital, where he died.

At the time of the shooting, police said, the suspect was seen driving a red 2013 Chevrolet Impala.

Anyone with information about Warner may call the Violent Crimes Unit at (225) 389-4869 or Crime Stoppers at (225) 344-7867.
