Jefferson Parish Sheriff”s Office arrest Donrell Breaux

Another chapter has been added to the “Police Gone Wild” news that seems to be sweeping the country. This time the event occurred in Jefferson Parish, La. Donrell Breaux, 26, was arrested by a deputy shown in the video who seems to be forcibly entering a private home. The deputy has out a pair of handcuffs and makes no announcement. Breaux asks the deputy repeatedly why he is being arrested and the deputy responds by saying, “I don’t answer to you.” Soon Breaux and the deputy are engaged in a physical struggle inside the home.

The Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office explained the context of the arrest. According to spokesperson Col. John Fortunato, the officer was responding to a neighbor’s complaint. The neighbor stated that he and his family could hear profanity and smell marijuana coming from the house where Breaux was. When the  neighbor confronted Breaux about the profanity and behavior, Breaux cursed at him in front of his wife and children.  According to Fortunato, “The complainant expressed his desire to pursue charges against the black male who cursed at him and his family. He then directed the officer to the area where the male subjects were standing,”

When the deputy approached Breaux, he smelled marijuana so he asked Breaux for his ID. Per the police, Breaux indicated that he might have his ID in the house. It was at this point the officer informed Breaux that he was under arrest and tried to enter the house. Breaux was arrested and charged with battery of a police officer, resisting arrest and disturbing the peace.
