The pursuit entered our parish near Downsville and ended in Bernice, involving several UPSO deputies. After the pursuit ended, Dy.

His fellow deputies immediately began CPR and rushed him to the hospital, but Dy. Nolan died due to a heart attack.
Dy. Nolan was a two-year veteran of UPSO. He was survived by a wife, two daughters, and one grandson.
