David Aycock, 40, of Prairieville, was arrested on charges of aggravated battery and possession of marijuana Wednesday night, Dec. 5 in connection with a fight at Brewzer’s Bar, 1919 N. MacArthur Drive.
When officers arrived at the bar about 10:36 p.m., a man told officers that Aycock and Eddie Jeter, 37, Deville, had been causing problems in the bar and fighting with other customers, according to the Alexandria Police Department.
According to the police report, Aycock and Jeter “disengaged” from the fight and ran to a nearby pickup truck. Aycock was the driver and Jeter was the passenger. Aycock allegedly yelled out of the truck’s window, “Watch this,” and backed out of his parking space while accelerating quickly towards several people that he had allegedly been fighting with inside the bar.
One man, who was standing in the parking lot, told officers he was not able to move quickly enough and the truck’s front bumper and driver’s side mirror hit him. Police said the truck did not stop and left headed north on MacArthur Drive. Acadian Ambulance arrived to treat the victim.
Meanwhile, the Louisiana State Police had pulled over the truck at North Bolton Avenue and Enterprise Road. The passengers appeared to be the same men from the bar. Troopers allegedly found a small, clear plastic bag of suspected marijuana belonging to Aycock.
When questioned about the incident at the bar, the men allegedly told officers they were involved in a fight at the bar. Aycock said of the truck incident, “I was trying to get the hell out of there and if I hit someone that got in the way, I did not mean to.”
Aycock was also arrested on a warrant, while Jeter was arrested on a charge of disturbing the peace.
