FROM:            SHERIFF LELAND FALCON
SUBJECT:      DOMESTIC ABUSE BATTERY / CHILD ENDANGERMENT / DISARMING

AMELIA Assumption Parish Sheriff Leland Falcon reports the arrest of Rodolfo Tosca Chan, 34, 143 Bayou Bouef Road, Morgan City, LA, on charges related to a domestic incident in Amelia early Thursday evening.

 

Deputies responded to a complaint of a fight involving several oriental males at a location in Amelia.  Upon arrival, deputies determined that the aforementioned suspect had kicked his pregnant wife in the stomach and departed the scene afterwards.

 

Deputies searched for the suspect and eventually observed him driving in the area.  Deputies attempted to stop the subject and that turned into a high-speed pursuit which ended up with the suspect crashing the car into a gate and fleeing on foot.

 

Deputies from St. Mary Parish became involved in the pursuit. At some point, Chan entered the swamp with deputies in close pursuit.  The deputies tased the suspect but he continued to flee.  A K-9 was then used to subdue Chan and during the struggle, Chan attempted to disarm a deputy.

 

Chan was arrested and transported to Assumption Community Hospital for lacerations, treated and released.  Chan was then transported to the Assumption Parish Detention Center and booked on charges of:

           

            *Domestic Abuse Battery (Pregnant Victim)

            *Domestic Abuse Battery with Child Endangerment

            *Aggravated Flight from an Officer

            *Disarming of a Peace Officer

            *Driver Must be Licensed

            *No Seat Belt

            *Stop Lamps and Turn Signals Required

            *Turning Movements and Required Signals

            *Stop Sign Violation

            *Resisting an Officer with Force or Violence

 

The domestic abuse victim was treated at a local hospital.

 

Chan remains jailed while awaiting a bond hearing.
