Lake Charles, LA (KPLC) - Deion McTier, Lake Charles and Bailey Tolbert, DeQuincy, were arrested on May 1 after fleeing police in a blue SUV at the “Busy Bee” gas station on Lake Street, according to the Lake Charles Police Department.

LCPD officers were dispatched to the gas station in reference to a disturbance involving a firearm, authorities said.

LCPD officers observed the blue SUV at a gas pump at which time they activated their emergency lights and gave verbal commands for McTier and Tolbert to exit the vehicle, authorities said.
