AVOYELLES PARISH, La. (KALB News Channel 5) Port Allen arrested after fleeing from Police when confronted for drug transaction.

On August 23, Kenneth Adams, 45, of 10911 L. J. Lane, Port Allen, La. was arrested by deputies in Simmesport. After attempting to run down Sheriff's Deputies with his vehicle and leading officers on a two Parish vehicle pursuit, Adams was arrested with approximately one oz. of suspected Crystal Methamphetamine and a quantity of suspected oxycodone. Sheriff Doug Anderson said it is suspected that Adams was in the Simmesport area early Friday morning to complete an alleged narcotics transaction.

Sheriff Anderson said Deputies confronted Adams on the parking lot of a local business and identified themselves as law enforcement officers. Adams quickly accelerated his vehicle nearly striking one deputy and grazing the leg of the other with his vehicle. Both were able to avoid being run over as Adams attempted to flee the parking lot. Adams fled southbound on La. 1 into Pointe Coupee Parish at speeds in excess of 100 m.p.h. in posted 45 and 55 m.p.h. speed zones. The Avoyelles Deputies pursued Adams into Pointe Coupee Parish and with the assistance of the Pointe Coupee Parish Sheriff's Office apprehended him on La. 418.

Kenneth Adams was initially booked into the Pointe Coupee Parish Jail and later transported to the Avoyelles Parish Sheriff's Office DC #1 charged with: two counts of Attempted 1st Degree Murder of a Police Officer, Aggravated Flight from a Police Officer, Obstruction of Justice, Driving Under Suspension and Possession of Schedule II CDS with Intent to Distribute. Bond has been set at $300,000.00.
