Police claim arrested man threatened officers
After being booked into Parish Prison on drug possession Thursday morning, a man turned to the Baton Rouge police officers who arrested him and said members of his army would be waiting for them later with automatic rifles, an affidavit says.
Kendrick Parker, 35, 3154 Bartlett St., Baton Rouge, was subsequently booked on one count of public intimidation in addition to the counts of simple escape and possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine, heroin and marijuana, prison records show.
Kendrick was arrested after officers searched an apartment on Keokuk Street and found heroin, powder cocaine and marijuana in a vehicle in the building’s driveway, according to an affidavit of probable cause.
Parker stated he was the only one who drove the car, the affidavit says. When officers placed him under arrest, he ran while in handcuffs for less than one block before officers corralled him, the affidavit says.

Patterson told police he tried to chastise them, but denied hitting them and said he pushed them down when they “became combative,” the affidavit says.
