In September, 2018, the Louisiana State Fire Marshall's Office investigated a house fire in the 1600 block of Parker Street in Franklinton. Four people had been asleep inside of the home when the fire was discovered. Investigators deemed the fire to be incendiary and developed Guidry as a suspect. Guidry eluded arrest until spotted by Franklinton Police over the weekend and he was placed under arrest after a foot pursuit.
Guidry was booked into the Washington Parish Jail on the charges of Fugitive Other Jurisdiction, Resisting an Officer/Flight on Foot, Unauthorized Entry of an Inhabited Dwelling, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Aggravated Arson (4 counts).
