In those affidavits, LSP provides the following sequence of events: 

The deputy was called to the Mamou area about a stolen ATV. After he cleared that call, he saw Guillory and Brown riding an ATV on Reed Cemetery Road. It was a little after 4 a.m., the initial report shows.

The deputy asked Guillory and Brown for identification, but neither had any on them, the affidavit states. Brown allegedly told detectives that Guillory became angry and punched the deputy, causing him to "become dazed and possibly lose consciousness."  The deputy told investigators that he "saw stars." 

The deputy then pulled his gun, and told Guillory to lay down on his stomach, which he did. But when the deputy started to handcuff Guillory, he started to struggle, according to the deputy's statement as well as the statement allegedly given by Brown.

The deputy said Brown then jumped on his back, placed her arm around his neck, punched him, pulled his hair and tried to grab his gun, the affidavit states. He heard her say "We are going to kill him," the deputy said. The deputy shot Guillory and told Brown to get off him, which she did, the affidavit states.

Brown allegedly admitted that she jumped on the deputy after he drew his gun, and began to choke and bite him. The deputy then shot Guillory, Brown allegedly told detectives. 

The deputy was treated at a hospital for non-life threatening injuries and was released, the initial report states.  To read that report, click here
