Published 7:17 am Tuesday, June 6, 2023
The St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office reports on Saturday, June 3, 2023, at approximately 9:15 am, deputies responded to the report of a black male, identified as Dameon Washington, who was known to be a wanted subject, standing in front of a residence in the 800 block of East Hoover Street in New Sarpy. Dameon Dee Washington, a 45-year-old male from Clement Street in New Sarpy, is a convicted felon with a lengthy and known violent criminal history. When deputies arrived and attempted to speak to Washington, he refused to speak with deputies and fled on foot, ignoring verbal commands to stop.
In order to take the actively resisting and wanted Washington into custody, a SCSO deputy deployed her department-issued taser in an attempt to subdue Washington. The taser was effective and Washington fell to the ground, but he quickly attempted to stand back up and overpower the deputy in an attempt to continue to flee. The deputy utilized a back mount to gain control of Washington’s upper body, at which time he bit her right forearm causing an injury that required medical attention. The deputy then utilized an open-hand technique to the rear of Washington’s head to prevent further biting. The initial deputy and an assisting deputy both gave orders to stop resisting, but Washington continued resisting while reaching toward his waistband. The assisting deputy utilized one, five-second drive stun burst with his department-issued taser to Washington’s shoulder, while simultaneously giving verbal commands to stop resisting, to which Washington refused to comply and continued to resist. A second assisting deputy utilized a figure four arm lock to gain control of Washington’s left arm, at which time a third assisting deputy was able to place Washington in handcuffs and take him into custody. After Washington’s resistance ceased and he was placed into handcuffs, he then stated he could not breathe and was immediately assisted off the ground by deputies to alleviate any potential breathing issues.
While assisting Washington off the ground, deputies located a clear plastic baggie, containing a white rock-like substance that tested positive for crack cocaine, directly underneath Washington. During a pat-down search, Washington was found in possession of a firearm concealed in his front right pocket, and a black bag, which contained two additional guns.
A crowd began to gather in the area as deputies placed Washington into handcuffs. Deputies escorted Washington, who walked under his own power, to a waiting transport unit and relocated to the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office Second District Station. During transport, Washington damaged the transport unit by violently kicking the window and door frame out of alignment making it inoperable. Washington was transferred to another transport unit and due to Washington continuously kicking, deputies utilized leg shackles to restrain his legs. During transport to the Correctional Center, Washington made threatening statements to the deputy. Due to Washington repeatedly kicking, Emergency Medical Services was requested to evaluate Washington at the Nelson Coleman Correctional Center.
Washington refused to cooperate with the assessment and was evaluated and cleared by emergency medical services after arriving at the Nelson Coleman Correctional Center.
In the black bag, deputies located a clear plastic bag containing Xanax, a gray plastic bag containing Hydrocodone, a green vacuum-sealed bag containing a green leafy vegetable matter that tested positive for the presence of THC, a medicine bottle containing Tramadol, a medicine bottle containing Cyclobenzaprine, a gray plastic bag containing another gray plastic bag that contained an off white powdery substance that tested positive for Cocaine, a medicine bottle containing Xanax, a black digital scale, seven unused plastic bags, a silver plastic bag containing MDMA, a white metal grinder, five packs of Cigarillos cigars, and a medicine bottle containing a brown liquid which could not be tested. Also inside the black bag was a black eyeglass case containing a clear plastic baggie containing a green leafy vegetable matter that tested positive for THC, two clear plastic baggies containing a white powdery substance that tested positive for Methamphetamine, a small plastic bag containing a white powdery substance that tested positive for Methamphetamine, and eight Suboxone sublingual films. Deputies further located two firearms with a variety of ammunition inside the black bag.
