On Monday, September 16, 2013, at 8:15 pm, a St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff’s Office Deputy attempted to stop a vehicle on Highway LA 44 in Reserve for a broken taillight.
When the deputy turned on the top lights on his patrol car, the driver continued driving and refused to stop. The deputy followed the car to Laplace as the car traveled 15 mph over the speed limit. The driver turned on Phoenix Lane and stopped the car in the 100 block. The passenger of the car fled from the car on foot.
Deputies arrested the driver of the car who was identified as Shawn Fisher, 43, of Cambridge Drive in LaPlace. He was booked with proper equipment required on vehicles, signal required, vehicle-entering highway from private drive, general speed law (2), reckless operation, flight from an officer, and resisting an officer. Fisher remains in custody in lieu of a $5,250.00 bond. Shawn Fisher was arrested 81 times in St. John the Baptist Parish since January 1989.
