Ridgeland PD nab shooter.

An afternoon of excitement in NE Jackson and Ridgeland came to an end as Ridgeland PD arrested a Justin Fowler after he shot at a van leaving the Home Depot on I-55 N in Jackson.

Chief Jimmy Houston told JJ the driver of the van arrived at Home Depot to pick up some materials.  He met Mr. Fowler in the parking lot. Mr. Fowler drove a newer model white Dodge Ram truck.  The two individuals met at Home Depot and had words. The victim left the parking lot with Mr. Fowler in pursuit. The chase continued to Briarwood Drive and then Old Canton Road.  Mr. Fowler shot at the victim with a .22 rifle but did not hit anything or anyone.  The victim was able to call 911. JPD transferred the call to Ridgeland PD.  RPD quickly dispatched units that apprehended Mr. Fowler on Old Canton Road north of Lake Harbor.  Mr. Fowler is white.  It is not known if Mr. Fowler was exercising his open-carry privileges or if he was wearing Home-Depot, oops, I meant hunter's orange. 

RPD arrested the suspect and charged him with DUI, possession of drug paraphernalia, and careless driving.  RPD also seized the rifle and several other firearms in the truck.   JPD has not requested extradition of Mr. Fowler to its custody nor has it inquired about the shooting. No bond has been set for the suspect.

Kingfish note: The victim needs to go down to JPD and file a criminal complaint. Nice job, Ridgeland dispatch. Yes, JJ will file a request for the police report. ;-)

I didn't think white people committed crimes in Jackson. I guess it's a first. Well, boy howdy.

That is one dumb white boy. He must have been on meth.

Amazing. It happens today and is reported today. What about that bogus bullshit last week where blacks all over the metro were shooting at all these little white hysterical girls. NO report yet???

Must've known to drive north so Micheal Guest could actually prosecute it, and R.P.D. Could actually catch em, and like the Chief said actually hold em.

Lord knows Hinds DA Robert Shueller-Smith ( really ) hyfinated, wouldn't have convicted him. CONGRATS R.P.D.
Job well done men.

James Hutto, George Affleck, Nattyo Grey, Bennie Gunn, Daryl Dedmon, Bernard Hubbard - all worst-of-the worst criminals convicted by Robert Shuler Smith's office.

Has he lost any cases in recent memory? Am I missing something?

All gimme cases, I.e...Slam Dunks ! Enough evidence Stevie Wonder could've presented em and received a convection.

Stop it !

Any "man" that expends time and money on eyebrow perfection wouldn't hesitate to adopt the comical feminine practice of last name hyphenation.

Whatever happens, please, please make sure to remember that your comments are about race. If not, I might get confused about what back-ass state we're in.

8:20 how many of those cases did he actually prosecute?

Micah Gober said...

11:39 if you don't like Mississippi please leave. You liberal views about Mississippi is only good over a Jackson Free Press.

Cases listed above were all a waste of taxpayer money. The state gets to choose which cases got to trial so of course they pick the cases easily won.. Then they (prosecutors) parade around like they are some kind of legal badasses... Especially that Hutto case... Ridiculous grandstanding on that one..

Zimmerman case and hyper media coverage might not help race relations and prosecuting crimes with racial motivations that are below the hate crime threshold. Law enforcement think assault is a 'he said she said' crime like domestic violence. The peace officers and state's attorneys generally like the movie-type stuff.

I doubt he was open carrying a .22 rifle. Rifles tend to limit mobility when worn in a waist holster.

Mike Goober ( misspelling intentional) racists are not in the majority in MS. And, frankly, if we had a referendum on open carry, it would go the way of the Parenthood referendum.

Disliking the ill mannered and boorish and racists who embarrass our state is not limited to liberals.

Your " why don't you leave" is worthy of a toddler.

If we had a referendum on open carry it would go the way of the vote on the state flag.

The Ridgeland police are the biggest bunch of Barney Fife's I have ever seen. They could not find their way out of a wet paper sack. They are too scared to go after the real criminals, but thrive on stopping citizens for going five miles over the speed limit. Yes, that takes a real tough guy. Jimmy Houston is no intelligent man by any stretch, however he allows these idiots that call themselves law enforcement patrol our streets. Shaving your heads and dressing like wanna be navy seals does not earn you respect.
These are the flunkies that protect us... Hahaha.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
