Lafayette Police Officer Edward Alleman responds to a “shots fired” call in the area. While searching the neighborhood he encounters a suspicious person on a bike and initiates a stop.

The suspect, on crack and other substances, does not comply. Backup arrives, and the suspect is finally taken into custody after a hearty struggle.
