QUINTARD DIOR TRUEHILL

NAPOLEONVILLE – Assumption Parish Sheriff Leland Falcon reports the arrest of Quintard Dior Truehill, 29, of 153, Bertrand Street, Napoleonville, LA, on a number of charges related to a traffic stop and escalated to an assault on Assumption Parish Deputies early Wednesday evening.

A K-9 unit on patrol in Napoleonville observed a vehicle commit a traffic violation and executed a stop of the vehicle.  The deputy interviewed the driver.  A second deputy arrived and both officers quickly recognized that the subject misrepresented his identity.

As the deputies advised the subject that he was under arrest, he fled on foot.  Truehill was quickly apprehended but initiated a physical attack on the two deputies.  The suspect was arrested, transported to the Assumption Parish Detention Center and booked on charges of:

            *Resisting Arrest with Force or Violence (2 Counts - Felony)

            *Battery Upon a Peace Officer (2 Counts - Felony)

            *Resisting an Officer by Misrepresentation

            *No Driver’s License

            *Disregarding a Stop Sign

Truehill also had warrants for Domestic Abuse Battery and Resisting Arrest in Assumption Parish, Failure to Appear in Ascension Parish and also a warrant for Failure to Appear in the City of Thibodaux.

Truehill was incarcerated pending a bail hearing.

The two deputies sustained minor injuries and were treated.
