BAYOU L’OURSE– Assumption Parish Sheriff Leland Falcon reports the arrest of Chad A. Ross, Jr., 26, of 102 Griffin Court, Morgan City, LA, on numerous charges resulting from a fight on May 29, 2019.


Deputies were dispatched to a Bayou L’Ourse business establishment on the aforementioned date and intercepted two suspect vehicles while enroute.


One of the vehicles stopped and the deputy attempted to stop the other vehicle but the suspect attempted to elude the officer.


The chase carried over into St. Mary Parish and at some point, the suspect threw an object out the window which was determined to be a handgun.


The chase continued into St. Mary Parish where the suspect eventually was stopped in Morgan City.  At that time, the vehicle was determined to contain illegal drugs and a significant amount of cash.


Deputies identified Chad A. Ross, Jr. as the driver.  Ross was booked into the Morgan City Jail on drug and other related charges.


Through investigation, deputies learned that Ross was previously convicted of a domestic abuse battery charge, therefore was prohibited from possessing a firearm.
