A domestic-violence suspect who led Assumption Parish deputies on a high-speed chase last year will serve two years in prison after pleading guilty to multiple charges, prosecutors said.
Rashied Green, 35, of 180 Georgette St., Labadieville, pleaded guilty last week to aggravated flight from an officer, aggravated criminal property damage and domestic abuse battery of a pregnant victim, authorities said.
District Judge Tess Stromberg ordered him to serve two years behind bars with credit for time served, 23rd Judicial District Public Information Officer Tyler Cavalier said.
Green was arrested Dec. 13 after deputies received a tip that he was inside the Bird’s Nest Night Club near Labadieville, the Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Office said. He was found hiding in the women’s restroom and was taken into custody. He was wanted on multiple charges, including a domestic battery incident and aggravated flight, authorities said.
The first incident occurred Jan. 20, 2018, when deputies responded to a domestic incident in Napoleonville. The victim, who was in a relationship with Green, told deputies she was pregnant and that Green had repeatedly struck her and trashed the home, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Green had his second encounter with law enforcement Feb. 21, 2018, when narcotics agents were patrolling La. 1 near Labadieville, the Sheriff’s Office said. When the agents saw a vehicle driving recklessly above the speed limit, they tried to initiate a traffic stop but the suspect ignored them.
The car crossed over to La 308 as agents continued to pursue it, authorities said. The car then returned to La. 1 heading north and rammed a police Tahoe near La. 400. Authorities were able to identify Green as the driver, but he stopped the car and escaped on foot, the Sheriff’s Office said. He remained at large until his arrest Dec. 13.
The case was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Lana Chaney.
