Suspect Jumped in Canal – HE COULDN'T SWIM!

Thursday (August 4, 2017) evening, following surveillance during an undercover operation in the Slidell area, St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office Narcotics Task Force Detectives moved in to arrest Kyle Jerome Anderson (31) of New Orleans.
First, Anderson took off at a high rate of speed and rammed head-on into an unmarked STPSO unit, causing heavy damage to both vehicles. Then, Anderson fled on foot and jumped into a nearby canal. BUT HE COULDN'T SWIM! Anderson immediately began yelling for help and that he could not swim. One of the detectives jumped into the canal, rescued Anderson from drowning, and arrested him without further incident. The female passenger of the vehicle driven by Anderson sustained injuries from the crash and has not been charged at this time.
A search of Anderson’s vehicle revealed a small amount of suspected crack cocaine, narcotic paraphernalia, over $1,000 in cash and two semi-automatic pistols. Anderson was charged numerous drug and firearms related charges.
