Chance Rose of Thibodaux was arrested Feb. 2, 2015 on counts of aggravated flight from an officer, simple battery and more. Assumption Parish Sheriff's Office.

A man who struck a woman while inside her home, then tried to kick in the door after she managed to get him out of the house was arrested Monday after he led deputies on a chase that reached speeds of 100 mph, Assumption Parish Sheriff Mike Waguespack said.

Deputies responded to a call shortly after noon Monday from a woman who said that Chance Rose had come to her home in Napoleonville. After she let him in, the two began to argue, and Rose hit her several times in the head, Waguespack said in a news release.

The woman was able to convince Rose to leave through the carport and she locked the door behind him, Waguespack said. She escaped through a front door and ran to a neighbor’s house. As she was leaving, she told deputies she could hear Rose trying to kick in the carport door.

Rose followed the woman to the neighbor’s house and began to argue with her again before he finally left in his vehicle, driving south on La. 308 toward Thibodaux, the sheriff said.

Assumption Parish Sheriff’s deputies attempted to stop Rose, but he continued driving, reaching speeds of 100 mph.

With the assistance of State Police, spike strips were used to disable Rose’s tires as he passed through Labadieville. Rose was arrested after he lost a tire on Manchester Manor Road in Lafourche Parish, the sheriff said.

Rose, 39, 125 E. 12th St., Thibodaux, was booked into the Assumption Parish Detention Center on counts of simple battery, unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling, resisting an officer and aggravated flight from an officer, the news release said.
