According to Louisiana State Police, the chase started just before 6 p.m. on Industrial Dr. when a trooper tried to stop the driver of a black Kawasaki motorcycle for a traffic violation, but the driver fled.

The pursuit continued all the way to a home on Stanton Court in The Colony subdivision, just off of Benton Road south of Vanceville Road. That’s where state police say the man, later identified as 35-year-old Brandon Roy Butler of Benton, ran inside and refused to come out for just over an hour.

State police say troopers, along with Bossier Parish Sheriff’s deputies, negotiated with the driver’s girlfriend until Butler finally came out of the house and surrendered without further incident.

Police say the public was never in danger, as Butler was not armed. They say he fled because he had outstanding warrants.
