Man Who Drove SUV Into Cross Lake Arrested for Attempted Murder
Caddo sheriff's deputies have arrested a man for attempting to kill his girlfriend. At about 9:30 last night, sheriff's patrol units found a red SUV in the water about 15 to 20 feet from the shore at Cross Lake. Deputies say it appeared the driver, 29-year-old Dajuan Jackson, was restraining his female passenger -- 19-year-old D'Aqua Guiden -- in the vehicle as it sank.
A deputy and a Fire District 1 fireman jumped in and swam to the vehicle, pulling Guiden to safety through a passenger's side window. They also got Jackson to shore. Deputies later learned that Jackson had deliberately swerved off the roadway into the lake in an attempt to harm himself and his girlfriend. He's been charged with attempted second-degree murder.
