Lacombe Man Arrested After Firing Upon Motorist

St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office deputies responded Tuesday morning (February 5, 2019) to a
report that a driver on I-12 observed another driver with at least two guns on or near his person. The driver, identified as Ronald Bonnaffons, Jr. (56) of Lacombe, then reportedly exited I-12 onto Hwy. 434 south, and drove a short distance before stopping in the middle of the roadway.

Bonnaffons then reportedly produced a handgun and immediately began firing upon a vehicle that had stopped behind him on the highway. The driver being shot at was able to escape his vehicle and use it as a shield to prevent him from being struck as Bonnaffons continued to fire upon the vehicle using a second weapon, a shotgun.

Bonaffons then reportedly fled the scene but was  located a short time later at his residence on Little Dixie Ranch Road. A search warrant was executed at the home, and deputies located a variety of firearms, including rifles, as well as ammunition and knives.

Bonnaffons was booked on the charges of Aggravated Assault with a Firearm and Aggravated Criminal Damage to Property

The investigation is ongoing.
