Lieutenant Ballard be- gan checking the business and observed a male, later identified as Ronnie Lumb- ley, 52, walking away from the rear of the building. In the rear of the business, a broken window was also observed. As Lieutenant Ballard attempted to de- tain Lumbley, he began to flee on a bicycle. Lieuten- ant Ballard pursued Lum- bley, as additional officers raced to assist with the chase. The chase lasted several blocks and Sergeant David Bryant observed Lumb- ley run behind a building on South Barrone Street. Sergeant Bryant ordered him to surrender; instead, Lumbley chose to fight. Lieutenant Ballard caught up, witnessing Lumbley actively resist arrest. After a brief struggle between both Officers and Lumbiey, he was taken into custody. It was discovered that Lumbley had just made entry to the business of the Greenwave Carwash by breaking a rear window. Lumbley was booked into the Tangipahoa Parish Jail on the following charges: L.R.S. 14:62, Simple Burglary L.R.S. 14:108, Resisting an OfficerL.R.S. 14:108, Resisting an Offi- cer Lumbley was currently on Parole for a previous burglary charge at the time of his arrest.
