Slidell Police Officer Injured During Pursuit / Suspect Sought

Update: Christopher Ducre surrendered himself to Slidell PD.

Original Story

Shortly before 6pm on Wednesday (June 21, 2023), Slidell Police were conducting an investigation and
attempted to stop an orange Dodge Charger near Highway 11 and Interstate 12.

The suspect vehicle failed to stop and fled from officers. The pursuit led into Lacombe on Highway 190W. During the pursuit, a Slidell Police officer conducted an evasive maneuver in order to avoid striking another vehicle. In doing so, the officer overturned his police unit into a ditch and struck a culvert. The suspect vehicle got away. The officer was transported to Lakeview Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. 

SPD has identified 29-year-old Christopher Ducre as the person driving the suspect vehicle and who is responsible for causing a serious accident and injury to the SPD officer. 

Ducre was last seen driving an orange 2019 Dodge Charger, bearing Louisiana license plate 373EOB. The rear drivers-side window is broken. Ducre is currently wanted for Aggravated Flight from an Officer, Vehicular Negligent Injuring, as well as various other traffic related charges.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Slidell Police at 985-643-3131 or Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111. Detective Benjamin Williams is leading the investigation.
