Brick throwing suspect tased, arrested by deputies

    Not only did he violate a protective order, but a man was jailed last week for also throwing bricks at deputies who came to the scene.

   It all happened Saturday, June 5th when Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to a house on Mary Beth Court in response to a disturbance involving Desmond Leoliver Copeland Sr., 33, of 1918 Short Morton St., Monroe.

   According to the official report, the victim, who called authorities, had a protective order against Copeland. When deputies arrived, Copeland was sitting on the front porch of the victim’s house with bricks in his hands.

   The deputies told him to drop the bricks but he started throwing the bricks at them, deputies reported.

    The deputies tased Copeland and handcuffed him. The victim told deputies that Copeland had thrown bricks through her bedroom window and at her vehicle.

    The back window of the victim’s window was shattered.

    Copeland was booked at Ouachita Correctional Center for violation of a protective order, two counts of simple criminal damage to property, and six counts of aggravated assault upon a police officer.
