Ronald Gasser's Prior Arrest


This email is in response to a question asked at today's news conference regarding Ronald Gasser's prior arrest.


Sheriff Newell Normand reports, Gasser was involved in an incident on February 20, 2006, around 3:30 PM that began on Holiday Drive in New Orleans and ended in the service station at the intersection of Holmes Blvd. and Berhman Hwy., in Terrytown.   During this incident, the victim/reporting person, identified only as a 51-year-old white male from Marrero, called 911 in Jefferson Parish to report that a male subject was driving a red pick-up truck unsafely on Holiday Drive.  The victim observed a phone number on the truck to call if the vehicle was being operated unsafely.  When the victim called the phone number, an individual, later identified as Ronald Gasser told the victim he was the one driving the red pick up truck.  A verbal altercation began between the victim and Gasser began at that time.  Once the victim reached the service station, he pulled in to begin refueling his vehicle.  It was at that time Gasser, who had followed him into the station, confronted him and began to strike him with a closed fist several times. After doing so, the victim reported Gasser drove out of the service station, at which time he called 911.  


Investigators at a later date located Mr.  Gasser, at which time he was issued a misdemeanor summons for simple battery. The charge of simple battery  was ultimately dismissed. We will continue to research this matter in order to determine the reason for the dismissal. Once we are able to determine same, we will report the outcome of our review.
