Luling woman runs into 4 cars while fleeing deputies
Deidre Ingram, 44, of 1212 Paul Fredrick St., was arrested on Aug. 7 and charged with hit and run driving, theft under $500, aggravated flight from an officer, driving without a license and reckless operation.
Sgt. Dwayne LaGrange, spokesman for the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office, said deputies first arrived at the scene at Brooklyn Street in Luling after Ingram allegedly struck another vehicle.
"We were contacted by the victim. As we responded on the scene (Ingram) tried to flee from us in her vehicle," LaGrange said. "Her vehicle struck one of our cruisers. After she struck the cruiser she tried to flee from the scene."
LaGrange said Ingram ran into two more cars during the chase and deputies had to use a box-in maneuver to stop her vehicle. Once she was stopped though, Ingram had no intention of slowing down, LaGrange said.
"She tried to flee on foot but was quickly captured," he said.
Ingram was the second suspect in two days to try to flee authorities.
"It is a different day of age now. These perpetrators tend to run as opposed to surrendering to us and dealing with the situation like they should," LaGrange said. "These days they feel they can get away, but we are not going to give up on apprehending these subjects."
