It was quite the sight late last night in Diamond Jack’s Casino after a Texas man was found naked inside the casino.
The man is identified as Terrence Roquemore of Deberry, Texas.
Bossier Police say Roquemore was running around naked, in an excited state. Police tried using a chemical spray to arrest him, but that had no effect.
Police say Roquemore then began to throw chairs, hitting one officer.
Non-lethal bean bag rounds were used and Roquemore was arrested.
He was transported to University Health in Shreveport where he remains hospitalized.
One female casino patron reported a medical complaint due to a residual effect from the chemical spray. The woman was taken to Willis-Knighton Pierremont for treatment. Two of the responding officers also sustained minor injuries during the incident.
Roquemore will be booked into the Bossier City Jail upon his release form the hospital.
He’s charged with aggravated battery, aggravated assault on a police officer, battery of a police officer, resisting an officer with force, disturbing the peace/drunk and obscenity.
