A suspect accused on Tuesday of hitting a Sheriff’s Office narcotics agent with his car and trying to run over other deputies was, at the time, free on $346,500 bail for two previous arrests, according to court documents.
The East Baton Rouge District Attorney’s Office has filed a motion to revoke bail for Eddie Isadore, 21, 4888 Sherwood Forest Blvd., who was booked into Parish Prison on Tuesday on two counts of attempted first-degree murder, two counts of aggravated damage to property and one count each of aggravated flight and resisting arrest by violence as a result of his run-in with the East Baton Rouge Parish deputies.
Isadore was arrested in April and booked on four counts of principal to attempted second-degree murder after a woman identified him as the driver during a harrowing March 7 early morning high-speed chase during which he allegedly sped after a woman and her 4-, 8- and 9-year-old children down Scenic Highway while a passenger in his car opened fire on the family’s car.
District Attorney Hillar Moore III said Thursday charges against a New Orleans man originally identified as the gunman have been dropped after the victim told prosecutors she’d misidentified him but that Isadore is still believed to have been the driver during the shooting.
Isadore was released on $300,000 bail in the Scenic Highway shooting. At that time, he had been freed from jail after posting $46,000 bail for a March 17, 2014, drug arrest. That case is also pending.
Bail for the latest set of allegations was set at $113,000, but a judge has since ordered Isadore held in jail until a hearing can be set on Moore’s request to revoke his bail.
Moore said Wednesday Isadore has shown himself to be a continuing danger to the public.
“I believe that he needs to remain in jail until the charges are disposed of,” Moore said.
