ST. TAMMANY PARISH, LA (WVUE) -

A Madisonville man is facing several charges after police said he kicked the door in at his ex-wife’s house, rammed his vehicle into the home and then led St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s deputies on an early morning chase.

Randall Cartier, 40, was booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail with home invasion, aggravated criminal damage, simple criminal damage to property, flight from an officer and second-offense DWI.

Police said Cartier showed up at his ex-wife’s Mandeville-area home Thursday shortly before 3:30 a.m. and kicked in the front door, screaming, while the occupants of the home barricaded themselves in an interior room and called 911. He then left the residence, and using his Toyota FJ Cruiser, rammed the home and the two vehicles that were parked in the driveway several times, causing significant damage, police said.

Cartier fled the area when he saw deputies approaching, got into his vehicle and led deputies on a high-speed chase through several neighborhoods and onto two highways before he failed to maneuver a curve on Soult Street. Cartier’s vehicle flipped and struck a light pole, ending the pursuit.

Cartier was taken into custody and treated at a local hospital for minor injuries before being booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail. He is currently being held without bond.
