Joe McKnight’s Killer was Arrest for Beating a Man at Same Intersection 10-Yrs Ago


It appears Ronald Gasser has been getting away with road rage for some time now!

According to the Times-Picayune — the thug who killed Joe McKnight was arrested 10-years ago at the same spot for beating another man in a similar road rage incident.

Ronald Gasser was issued a misdemeanor summons for simple battery in the Feb. 20, 2006 incident, after a man said Gasser attacked him and beat him with his fist, the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office said. The charge was ultimately dismissed, but will be reviewed again now, JPSO said in a press release.

Gasser fatally shot McKnight, a former NFL player and local high school standout, at the end of a road rage incident in the Terrytown intersection of Behrman Highway and Holmes Boulevard, authorities said. Gasser, who shot McKnight three times, was released without charges Friday, pending results of an investigation.

Authorities say those charges from ten-years ago will be reviewed in lieu of the McKnight shooting. The Victim from the 2006 assault got into the altercation with Gasser after trying to report him for unsafe driving.
