Man wrongfully released in Lady Gaga’s dog theft gets apprehended and arrested
According to authorities, a man who was wrongly released from a Los Angeles County jail after being arrested on suspicion of shooting Lady Gaga’s dog walker and stealing her French bulldogs has been captured.
Almost five months after he was freed from jail “due to a clerical error,” the sheriff’s department stated in a statement, James Howard Jackson, 19, was arrested Wednesday.
As part of the investigation into the Hollywood attack of February 24th, 2021, Jackson was one of five people detained.
The U.S. Marshals Service has offered a $5,000 reward for information leading to his capture since last month.
After pleading no contest to robbery in the second degree, one of the other two suspects in the case was taken into custody.
Deputy District Attorney Michele Hanisee informed that Jaylin Keyshawn White, 20, had been sentenced to four years in prison on the spot.
According to the prosecution, Jackson and two other gang members drove about hunting for high-end French bulldogs to steal before seeing and robbing Ryan Fischer as he walked Lady Gaga’s canines along Sunset Boulevard. There were three canines named Asia, Koji, and Gustav at Fischer’s company.
Fischer was beaten, choked, and eventually shot during a scuffle that was seen on the doorbell video of a nearby residence.
Fischer can be heard yelling, “Oh, my God!” on the footage. ” I’ve been shot” “Help me!” and “I’m bleeding out from my chest!”
One of Fischer’s lungs was torn in two. His recovery went well, he wrote on Instagram a month after the crime.
A woman claimed to have found Lady Gaga’s dogs chained to a pole and inquired about the pop star’s $500,000 prize for their safe return two days later. Filming for a movie was place at the time in Rome, where the singer happened to be.
She was charged with receiving stolen stuff and the father of another defendant was charged with aiding him evade justice.
When the district attorney’s office filed a superseding indictment charging Jackson with attempted murder, conspiracy to commit robbery, and assault with a semiautomatic handgun, Jackson had already been indicted and had pleaded not guilty.
