BATON ROUGE – A man charged with a felony after hitting a pedestrian on Siegen Lane and severing the man’s arm turned himself in to state police this week, and when he turned himself in, troopers found marijuana and arrested him on an additional count. , court records show.
Kyron T. Fisher, 25, turned himself in Monday to charges first brought after he struck a pedestrian on Siegen Lane near I-10 last June.
“During his arrest, troopers found marijuana on his person. Mr. Fisher was then transported to the East Baton Rouge Parish Jail, where he was booked for possession of marijuana, as well as the (original) warrant,” Sgt. James McGee wrote in a signed affidavit Wednesday night.
McGee said he visited with Fisher late Wednesday and was formally charged with impaired driving, obstruction of justice, criminal conspiracy and reckless endangerment.
Investigators say Fisher and two passengers conspired to lie to police, with one saying he witnessed the crash but not telling anyone he knew he hit the pedestrian. The other passenger is accused of calling 911 but not telling dispatchers everything he knew.
A female passenger filmed the victim screaming and sent it to Fisher, according to a warrant filed after the arrest of the other passenger, 23-year-old Marcus McNair Jr. Police have not identified the woman other than her date of birth. He is 25.
Fisher’s name is spelled “Kyron” and “Kyrone” in state police documents. The case was assigned to 19th Judicial District Judge Ebony Johnson Rose. Jail records Thursday showed bond was set at $105,000.
