Louisiana Man Arrested For Allegedly Shooting At His Estranged Girlfriend and Other Crimes

Sabine Parish, Louisiana – A Louisiana man has been arrested for allegedly shooting at his estranged girlfriend and other crimes.

On July 6, 2023, Sabine Parish Sheriff Aaron Mitchell announced that on July 3, 2023, Waylon Maurice Sepulvado, a 43-year-old resident of Zwolle, Louisiana was arrested.

A woman called 911 to report that her estranged boyfriend, Waylon Sepulvado, was chasing her in his Acura car. She said he tried to block her in, forced her off the road, threatened her with a gun, and shot at her vehicle several times while they were on North Toledo Park Road. The woman’s car sustained damage as Sepulvado repeatedly forced her off the road. Fortunately, she managed to escape from him without getting hurt.

Sabine Parish Sheriff Deputies managed to catch up to Sepulvado on LA Highway 3229. Sepulvado evaded the deputies and proceeded to LA Highway 191, heading south towards Carters Ferry Road. Sepulvado was driving recklessly, exceeding the speed limit, and causing other vehicles to swerve off the road.

The agents from the Tactical Narcotics Team successfully intercepted Sepulvado’s car on Carters Ferry Road, after which he fled into the nearby woods while carrying a firearm. Deputies and agents apprehended Sepulvado in the woods and took him into custody. Upon arresting him, authorities reportedly found methamphetamine and a glass smoking device in his pocket. Additionally, deputies discovered Sepulvado’s loaded 9mm semi-automatic pistol in the vicinity of the woods where he was captured.

In 2017, Sepulvado was taken into custody for battering the same woman, and she had a valid restraining order against him.

Sepulvado is now facing three charges of aggravated assault with a firearm, violating a protective order, possessing a firearm as a person convicted of domestic abuse battery, aggravated obstructing highways of commerce, aggravated criminal damage to property, aggravated flight from an officer, resisting an officer, possessing a firearm as a person convicted of specific felonies, possessing schedule II drugs (Meth), possessing drug paraphernalia, and possessing a firearm in the presence of controlled dangerous substances.

There are also potential federal charges that are being considered by the United States Postal Inspection Service.

An arrest is an indication that probable cause exists to believe the subject was involved in the offense alleged. All persons are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
