BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – A Baton Rouge man was put behind bars after a recent incident on Greenwell Street.
Timothy Badon, 25, of Baton Rouge was arrested after an alleged altercation involving deputies with the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office.
Two EBRSO deputies were on patrol when a call came in about the location of a person of interest. That person of interest was wanted for questioning in connection with a physical altercation that took place last month.
The altercation allegedly took place after Badon stole a phone from someone. Deputies located and questioned the 25-year-old about this physical altercation.
According to an affidavit, Badon admitted to moving the victim’s phone without permission which lead to a physical altercation.
While this was going on, deputies on the scene noticed that Badon might be carrying a firearm. The affidavit states that at some point, the Baton Rouge man “made an attempt to reach for his waistband area.”
Badon allegedly did this again after being told not to by EBRSO deputies. What followed was a struggle between Badon and the deputies. Badon allegedly tried to get away from deputies while ignoring instructions.
The local man is accused of “violently” resisting arrest by deputies. Badon was eventually detained and searched by deputies.
Documents said deputies found a loaded .22 caliber revolver on Badon. By law, Badon was not allowed to have a gun until January of 2023.
Badon was booked into the EBR Parish Prison on Friday, July 1.
The 25-year-old faces charges of Resisting A Police Officer With Force Or Violence, Violations Of Protective Orders, Illegal Carrying Of Weapon and Possession Of Firearm Or Carrying Concealed Weapon By A Person Convicted Of Certain Felonies.
