Suspect arrested after standoff with police

A Bossier City man was arrested last Friday, May 23, after he reportedly threatened to kill his girlfriend and himself and then refused to surrender to officers.

Bossier City police were summoned to the suspect’s home in the 2400 block of Brookside Drive just after midnight last Friday regarding a domestic disturbance.

When officers arrived, the suspect’s girlfriend had already exited the house unharmed, but the suspect refused to come out after acknowledging multiple requests from officers that he do so for questioning.

The suspect, identified as 43- year-old Michael Brian Dale, remained inside the house when at one point officers saw him through a window carrying two firearms.

Bossier City Police Department SWAT Team members and department negotiators then responded to the scene while Dale remained isolated inside the house while refusing further communication with police.

Just after 4 a.m. Dale opened the door to the home’s garage and surrendered to SWAT officers without further incident.

Dale was taken to University Health Center for an evaluation and then released.

He was subsequently booked into the Bossier City Jail on a charge of aggravated assault and later transferred to the Bossier Parish Maximum Security Facility.

Here’s an interesting thought. Why is it that Louisiana and neighboring state Mississippi are always on the bottom of every national ranking involving virtually every aspect of a state’s quality of life? Yet casino gambling is widespread throughout both states at a level not found any place else in America outside of Las Vegas.

On April 28, citizens of Shreveport face a choice: Fund basic city services or plunge the city into fiscal chaos. It would have been inconceivable 20 years ago that routine tax renewals to fund the fire and police departments and other basic city services would not have the collective support of the city’s business, civic and political leadership.
