A Jamestown, La. Man was arrested in Webster Parish Friday as a fugitive from Bienville Parish.

Brandon R. Dickson, 39, was taken into custody by Louisiana State Police- G when a trooper responded to a single vehicle crash on La. 507 near Ayers Road around mid-afternoon.

According to the report, TPR John Wynn observed a yellow Chevrolet Corvette in the wood line. It was bearing a Louisiana license plate and registered to Dickson. The trooper reportedly discovered an open beer can on the dash next to the windshield.

Webster Parish Sheriff’s Deputy Scott Gill told Wynn a witness reported seeing the driver fleeing into the woods in a LSU shirt and gray sweatpants.

While conducting the on-scene investigation, Dickson’s spouse arrived and provided law enforcement with a phone number for her husband.

Deputy Gill reportedly contacted Dickson who advised he was en-route to the hospital with a friend. Approximately one hour after the trooper’s response, Dickson was located emerging from the woodbine on La. 507. He was reportedly bleeding from his forehead from injuries sustained during the crash. An emergency medical services unit was contacted.

According to the report, Dickson showed signs of intoxication and told officers he left the scene because he had been drinking prior to driving.

Dickson was evaluated at Minden Medical Center and transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center where he was booked as a fugitive from Bienville Parish on charges of second offense D.W.I., careless operation, failure to report an accident and possession of alcohol in a motor vehicle. His bond was set at $50,000.
