Man Arrested in Bourbon Street Daiq Attack, 3 Still Sought (VIDEO)


Police made an arrest in last Sunday's heated daiquiri dispute at a Bourbon Street shop, but the woman who pointed a gun at an employee is still at-large. NOPD Eighth District Detective Michael Flores is hoping new video of the suspects will help police find the woman who became irate after "helping herself" to a daiquri. Click through to view new video connected to the crime:

 

Surveillance video showed the woman tangling with the bartender about 2:30 a.m. on June 9. The employee went to confront the woman after she was seen liberating a frozen beverage. But as the confrontation escalated, she pulled out a gun and threatened to shoot the employee. She will be charged with aggravated assault.

 

On Thursday, one of the men seen leaving the bar with the woman was arrested. A probation and parole officer recognized Burnell Jones, and notified Flores. Jones was booked with principal to aggravated assault.

In addition to Jones, the woman left the bar with another man and a woman. Police are still looking for all three. New video shows the group outside on Bourbon Street:

 

 

 

According to police, the perpetrator in the video appears to be approximately 5'10" tall with long black hair. She is wearing a red shirt and what appears to be light colored jeans. Police appear to be backing off an earlier descriptor that she is "possibly pregnant."

 

The male first person of interest that is seen with Jones and the perpetrator was a black male, approximately 6 ft. tall with a thin build and wearing what appears to be a camouflage hat, a black t-shirt and long camouflage shorts.

 

The female second person of interest that is seen with Jones  and the perpetrator was a black female, approximately 5 ft. 8 in.  with a medium build and a medium complexion. The woman was wearing a long, tight multicolored dress with bluish green platform shoes. She had hot pink hair that extended down to the center of her back.

 

Anyone with information regarding this incident can contact Det. Michael Flores at (504)658-6707 or MFlores@nola.gov. Citizens can also call CrimeStoppers at (504)822-1111.
