Shreveport man arrested after Bossier police respond to burglary in process


A Shreveport man is facing multiple criminal charges after he was caught burglarizing a Bossier City home.

Bossier City police officers arrested Michael Mitchell Clayton, 32, after they were called Monday afternoon about a man who was seen by a witness breaking into a house in the 200 block of South Youree Street.

When police arrived on the scene they found Clayton inside the residence. Clayton ran out of the house and attempted to flee. Officers gave chase and caught up with Clayton as he attempted to jump a fence. Clayton then began fighting with the officers. He was taken into custody after brief struggle during which one officer received a minor injury to his right arm.

Clayton was arrested and booked into the Bossier City Jail on charges of simple burglary, resisting with force, battery on a police officer and battery on a police officer with injuries.

Officers learned that Clayton had outstanding warrants for his arrest from the Bossier City Police Department, Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office and Shreveport Police Department on various charges including theft, illegal possession of stolen things, burglary and failure to appear.
