Officer Involved in Single Vehicle Accident

Tuesday, June 03, 2014 11:38 AM

This morning, around 2:37 AM, Third District officers were dispatched to a residence burglary in progress, at an address on Primrose Lane in Waggaman. An elderly female called 911 to report 5 subjects climbed into her home through her window and were refusing to leave. Officer Jaron Fountain, while responding to the call was traveling Westbound on Live Oak when it appears he lost control of his vehicle and landed in a ditch. Officer Fountain was transported to University Hospital where he remains in critical condition.

Traffic investigators determined the accident involving JPSO Deputy Fountain occurred on Live Oak Drive approximately 100 yards west of Willswood Drive in Waggaman. The roadways around the intersection of Live Oak Drive and Willswood will be closed for several hours.

In regards to the 911 Call on Primrose Lane, the first responding officers who arrived at the address on Primrose met with the female reporting person who told them the subjects were in an upstairs bedroom. While conducting a search of the home, our officers were told by an elderly male who was also in the home, that the female caller suffers from dementia and there was no one in their home. The officers completed their search and determined there were no signs of forced entry and no one else was in the home.

Deputy Jaron Fountain, 25 years-of-age, joined the JPSO in September of 2010, where he was assigned to the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center. In April, Jaron was selected to attend JPSO Academy Recruit Class #49. Upon graduation in August of 2013 Deputy Fountain was assigned to the Third District Patrol Division.
