Fugitive Arrested in Baton Rouge

Michael Dewayne Coleman was arrested last Monday after fleeing from U.S. Marshals the previous week after they tried to arrest him in Baton Rouge.

Coleman is currently booked in East Baton Rouge Parish Prison and will be taken to Pointe Coupee Parish Detention Center later.

Baton Rouge police and East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s deputies had been assisting U.S. Marshals with the search.

Coleman is wanted on two counts of resisting arrest and one count of escape. The warrant for his arrest is from a December incident in which Coleman fled from Pointe Coupee Sheriff’s deputies.
