The following is a Press Release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office:

The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office has arrested Kevin M. Jenkins, 25, who was wanted for 2nd degree battery, battery on a police officer, resisting arrest and possession of marijuana with intent.

On April 23 at approximately 9 p.m., Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office deputies were dispatched to Jenkins' apartment in Lake Charles, to investigate a complaint regarding drug activity at the apartment.

When deputies arrived and spoke with Jenkins, they observed several half-burnt cigarettes containing a green-leafy substance inside the apartment. After receiving permission to search the apartment, deputies recovered a bag from the top of Jenkins' closet which contained six bags of marijuana.

When deputies attempted to arrest Jenkins, he resisted violently, injuring two deputies, and fled on foot.  Both CPSO deputies were treated at a local hospital and released.

On April 24, around 2:45 p.m., Jenkins was located at a home on Jerry Lee Avenue in Lake Charles.  When members of the CPSO ACT-Team responded and entered the home to take Jenkins into custody, he briefly barricaded himself inside a bedroom of the residence until he attempted evading arrest again by escaping out of the bedroom window where he was caught by deputies.  Jenkins was subdued after fighting with deputies but during the struggle to handcuff Jenkins, he attempted to disarm one of the ACT-T members.

Jenkins was arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center with the additional charges of resisting an officer; and attempting to disarm a police officer.  

Jenkins, who is currently on parole until 2016 for a conviction of possession with intent to distribute CDS I (marijuana); and possession with intent to distribute CDS II (cocaine), is being held without bond.

    Nice day, despite the clouds on WednesdayNice day, despite the clouds on Wednesday

    Tonight, skies will be clear and we will have little to no chance for rain. Tonight will be much cooler. We had a cold front come through early this morning and that decreased the dew point and cleared the sky of any clouds. This will allow temperatures to fall. South of I-10 will be in the mid to upper 30s, while north of I-10 will be in the freezing temperatures. As we go through this week, the weather will be nothing less than perfect!
