Donrell Breaux, 26, was arrested March 30 by a Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office deputy. In a video that has gone viral on Facebook, he said was the victim of an unlawful arrest.
Breaux said he and Banegas were standing on Banegas' front porch and talking. He admits to using profanity, but said they were cracking jokes amongst themselves.
The neighbor walked out of his house and warned the two to watch their language. Breaux said the neighbor was belligerent, prompting a brief verbal confrontation that ended with the neighbor telling them he was calling the police.
About 10 to 12 minutes later, a deputy arrived and spoke for a few minutes with the neighbor, according to Breaux. "Then, he's grabbing my hoodie with handcuffs out. He said, 'Let me see some I.D.,' and grabs my wrist and says, 'You're under arrest,' at the same time," Breaux said.
"I thought it was unlawful."
Breaux, who has been living at the Marmandie Avenue address since December, said he recognized the deputy as a friend of the neighbor. "I've seen him at the residence before," he said.
Breaux was eventually taken into custody and booked with battery of a police officer, resisting arrest with violence, disorderly conduct and disturbing the peace.
