Suspect wrongly freed in Lady Gaga dog theft case recaptured

A suspect who was wrongly released from a Los Angeles County jail where he was being held on suspicion of shooting Lady Gaga’s dog walker and stealing her French bulldogs has been re-arrested, authorities said.

Ames Howard Jackson, 19, was arrested Wednesday nearly five months after his release from prison while awaiting trial “due to a clerical error,” the county sheriff’s department said in a statement.

Jackson was one of five people arrested in connection with the February 24, 2021 attack in Hollywood.

Last month, the US Marshals Service announced a reward of up to $5,000 (£4,100) for information leading to his arrest.

Jackson’s arrest comes as one of three men charged in the case pleaded not to plead a second-degree robbery charge.

Jaylin Keyshawn White, 20, was immediately sentenced to four years in prison, Assistant District Attorney Michele Hanisee told NBC4.

Prosecutors said Jackson and two other suspected gang members drove around in search of expensive French bulldogs to steal and then spotted, shadowed and robbed Ryan Fischer while he was walking Lady Gaga’s dogs near the famous Sunset Boulevard went.

Fischer dated the pop star’s three dogs, named Asia, Koji, and Gustav.

During a pitched fight, Fischer was beaten, choked and then shot in an attack caught by the doorbell camera of a nearby house.

On the video, Fischer yelled, “Oh my god! I was shot!” and “Help me!” and “I’m bleeding from my chest!”

Fischer lost part of a lung.

About a month after the crime, he posted on Instagram that his recovery was going well.

The pop star’s dogs were returned two days later by a woman who claimed she found them tied to a pole and asked about Lady Gaga’s offer of a $500,000 (£410,000) reward if the dogs were returned “no questions asked”. .

The singer was in Rome at the time to shoot a film.

The woman has been accused of receiving stolen property and another suspect’s father is accused of helping him avoid arrest.

Jackson had already been charged with the assault and had pleaded not guilty when the district attorney’s office filed a substitute indictment charging him with attempted murder, conspiracy to commit a robbery and assault with a semi-automatic firearm.
