Surveillance video from Fred’s Travel Center on highway 30 in St. Gabriel captured an unusual sight.
Scott Delatte, the business owner, said the deer went galloping through the Travel Center parking lot.
A suspect's daring jump to freedom leaves him flat on the pavement and behind bars.
Suspect Eric Simmons, 42, reaches his arm out of the cruiser window, unlocks the door and out he goes, tumbling out onto the street.
UPDATE: Elvin Terrell, 35, turned himself in to police on Sunday, Aug. 18. He is charged with one count of Domestic Second-Degree Battery, one count of Domestic Kidnapping, Child Desertion, Child Endangering, and Cruelty to a Juvenile.
