NAPOLEONVILLE, La. (BRPROUD) – Jaron Gray, 37, of Paulina, was recently booked into the Assumption Parish Detention Center after a trio of incidents involving law enforcement over the last year.

The first incident ended with the arrest of Gray on one count of Possession of a Schedule II Drug.

On that date, Gray “is accused of engaging deputies in a pursuit situation,” according to APSO.

APSO said that chase saw Gray reach speeds of 125 mph.

Gray was recently put behind bars in the Assumption Parish Detention Center in connection with that chase.

The 37-year-old was charged with the crimes listed below:

  • Aggravated Flight from an Officer
  • Driving on Roadway Laned for Traffic
  • Driving Under a Suspended Driver’s License
  • Possession of Marijuana or Synthetic Cannabinoids

On the day before being booked and charged with the crimes mentioned above, the Paulina man was arrested by the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office.

In addition to the crimes listed above, APSO said Gray was also “booked on a count of Failure to Appear in Court in Assumption Parish on charges of Possession of a Schedule II Drug.”

Gray was subsequently released from prison after posting bond.
