Man assaults GSU Police

Grambling State University Police arrested a Hammond man Tuesday after officers attempted to help him and he responded by assaulting them.

At about 10 p.m. Tuesday, the GSU Police Department was notified of a man walking down Main Street on the campus stating he was stranded and homeless.

Officers met with the man who said he just got out of jail and was feeling depressed. He was taken to the GSU police station for further investigation. The man, Lafimmas Leevon Haynes, 24, began acting paranoid and moving erratically around the office according to the arresting officer’s report. Haynes then removed his pants, socks, and shirt and grabbed an officer’s radio. A tussle ensued and he was handcuffed to restrain him. 

Haynes was taken out to a patrol car and when they reached the car, he stated he was not going anywhere. As he was being placed in the patrol car, he became aggressive and combative and kicked the officers.

Haynes was placed under arrest for resisting an officer with force and two counts of battery on a police officer. He was transported to the Lincoln Parish Detention Center and booked.

Bail was set at $10,000.
