According to St. Mary Parish Sheriff Mark Hebert the Narcotics Division made the following arrests:
Brent M. Dalton, 33, 105 Sydney Jo Lane, Berwick, LA was arrested on December 16, 2013 at 6:11 pm for flight from an officer and reckless operation. While patrolling the Berwick area, Detectives of the St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office Narcotics Division watched a vehicle cross the fog line several times before driving on the shoulder of Highway 182. Detectives conducted a traffic stop near the Tournament Boulevard intersection and made contact with the driver identified as Dalton. Dalton refused to comply with the detectives order to open the door, put the vehicle in drive, and accelerated at a high rate of speed causing the vehicle's tires to spin. Nearly colliding with another vehicle, Dalton fled from detectives travelling down Highway 182. Detectives activated emergency lights and sirens and followed the vehicle to Sidney Jo Lane where Dalton was detained. Following the investigation, Dalton was transported to the parish jail for booking and incarceration. No bond is set.
