On May 20, a Washington Parish Sheriff's Office patrol sergeant responded to a call for assistance on Highway 21 south of Bogalusa.  Arriving at the scene, he discovered a distraught woman hiding in the restroom of a business.  The woman stated that she had been pulled from her car  which was then forcibly taken from her.  The officer located the vehicle on the premises and arrested the driver.

Timothy Dewayne Mizell, 51, a resident of Hunt Road, was arrested and booked into the Washington Parish Jail on charges of carjacking and battery.

"I'm so pleased this lady was not harmed," stated Sheriff Randy Seal.  "Whatever the circumstances, Mr. Mizell seems to have over-reacted.  Our officer did a good job, possibly preventing the entire situation from escalating."
