Shreveport Man Arrested for Several Terrorist Threats
Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office detectives have arrested a Shreveport man for making terroristic threats against Caddo Courthouses.
Chad Norris, 44, of the 4500 block of Glenn Road in Shreveport, was being investigated by Sheriff’s detectives after making multiple threats against the Caddo Courthouse, the Juvenile Court, saying he wanted to kill everyone inside. Further investigation revealed Chad also made multiple harassing and threatening phone calls to the Gingerbread House, the Volunteers for Youth Justice, and other elements of the Juvenile justice system.
On Wednesday, May 5, Sheriff’s detectives Captain Bobby Herring and Sergeant Casey Jones contacted Norris at his home where he tried to enter after being told he was being detained in conjunction with an active investigation. At their attempt to secure him in handcuffs, Norris tried to break Sgt. Jones’ arm and leg, and he elbowed Capt. Herring in the face. He also placed Sgt. Jones in a headlock to render him unconscious. He was eventually subdued and placed in handcuffs and then transported to the Criminal Investigation Division for an interview.
Detectives obtained and executed a search warrant for Norris’ home where several firearms and body armor were found.
Norris was arrested and booked into the Caddo Correctional Center on one charge of Terrorizing, one count of Possession of a Firearm by a Person Convicted of Domestic Battery, two counts of Resisting a Police Officer with Force or Violence, and two counts of Battery of a Police Officer.
No bond has been set in the case.
