BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — A Houma man faces 11 new criminal charges and a $455,000 bond after allegedly leading Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies on a brief car chase in a stolen vehicle early Sunday morning.

Deputies attempted to stop 28-year-old Tevin Jackson in a stolen vehicle at a Gonzales gas station just before 3 a.m. when he allegedly fled the area and led deputies on a high-speed pursuit, according to an APSO press release.

Shortly after fleeing, Jackson reportedly lost control of the truck at Airline Highway and Highway 621.

That’s when Jackson fled on foot, according to deputies.

After apprehending him, deputies discovered Jackson was wanted by the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office for two counts of attempted first-degree murder, two counts of aggravated criminal damage to property and possession of a firearm by convicted felon.

Deputies reportedly found meth, heroin and a gun with a high-capacity magazine on Jackson, according to APSO.
