MONROE, La. (KTVE/KARD) — On Monday, April 25, 2022, Monroe Police initiated a traffic stop on a 1996 Jeep Cherokee at the intersection of Grammont Street and South 21st Street. As officers exited their patrol unit, the passenger of the Jeep Cherokee, 40-year-old Kristin Wade, exited the vehicle and walked into the front yard of a residence on the 2000 block of Grammont Street.

According to authorities, Wade was holding the front of his hooded shirt with both hands prior to making it to the front door of the residence. Wade was given multiple loud verbal commands to return to the Jeep Cherokee, but he refused by stating, “I ain’t do s**t, you stopped him.”

Wade then continued to put the key in the front door and officers used a taser on him, but it had little effect. Wade then entered the residence and shut the door, and refused to come back outside.
