On Sunday, July 29, patrol deputies responded to West 133rd Street in Galliano in reference to an aggravated battery. Through investigation, deputies learned a male subject was walking from his house to a friends house down the street when he was confronted by another subject, later identified as Geraldo Reyes (H/M, D.O.B. 08/10/90) of 250 W. 133rd Street, who was holding a knife. The man was able to avoid Reyes and proceeded to his friends house. Both the man and his friend began walking back to the mans house when Reyes appeared again, this time with a baseball bat. Reyes swung twice and missed, but on the third swing he struck the man in the face, knocking him unconscious. The friend immediately called 911. The victim was transported to an area hospital, and his left eye was observed to be black and swollen as well as the left side of his face and cheek. Meanwhile, deputies made contact with Reyes at his residence and placed him under arrest without incident. He was transported to the Lafourche Parish Detention Center in Thibodaux where he was booked with aggravated second degree battery and aggravated assault. He is being held in lieu of $11,000 as set by Judge Ashly Bruce Simpson.
Through investigation, deputies learned that on May 30, 2006, Derek Daigle (W/M, D.O.B. 2/25/79), of 210 Cypress Court Trailer Park in Gray, drove to a residence on Ida Street in Bayou Blue to fight with a male subject. Daigle allegedly began beating on the man when the mans sister came to his aid. On four separate occasions, Daigle allegedly picked up the woman and threw her to the ground. The woman previously had all of her toes and most of her fingers amputated due to suffering from several ailments. Because of her condition, she was unable to properly hold her balance and could not effectively defend herself. The woman received several cuts and scratches from being thrown to the ground. Meanwhile, her brother had received a laceration to the forehead and scratches to the forearm from being struck repeatedly by Daigle. Following an investigation into the matter, deputies obtained a warrant for Daigles arrest on the charges of simple battery and four counts of simple battery of the infirm. Then on July 29, 2012 patrol deputies responded to a possible disturbance at Daigles residence in Gray where they made contact with Daigle. He was arrested and charged as per the warrants, and is now being held at the Lafourche Parish Detention Center in Thibodaux in lieu of $3,500 bond as set by the warrants.
