Kidnapping suspect leads deputies on chase

A Dubach man wanted on a kidnapping warrant led Lincoln Parish deputies on a high-speed chase through two parishes Tuesday before crashing into a patrol vehicle.

Deputy D. Fleming spotted a vehicle operated by Colby E. Moon, 32, on LA Highway 821 Tuesday afternoon. Fleming knew Moon was wanted on an outstanding warrant and attempted to stop him. Moon reportedly fled and was pursued at speeds of 70-80 miles per hour on several northeast Lincoln Parish roads. Committing numerous traffic violations, Moon left the roadway several times but managed to regain the pavement. At one point, Moon nearly struck a deputy’s car head-on, forcing the patrol car off the roadway. 

Moon eventually crossed into Union Parish and was met by additional deputies. He made a U-turn and collided with a patrol vehicle, disabling his car.

Moon was arrested and booked in Union Parish and then transferred to the Lincoln Parish Detention Center. He is charged with aggravated flight from an officer and a warrant for aggravated kidnapping.
