Suspect Who Shot Lady Gaga’s Dog Walker Mistakenly Released From Jail
Even on the rare occasion when the pigs do something good and get the right person behind bars, the L.A. district attorney’s office still manages to fuck it all up. Via NBC:
One of three men charged with the shooting and robbery of Lady Gaga’s dog walker was released from jail in what several law enforcement sources told NBCLA was an administrative mistake.
James Howard Jackson, 18, who was accused in court papers of firing the shots during the theft of Gaga’s dogs in February 2021, was freed Wednesday after a court appearance, and booking records showed it was because the charges against him were dismissed.
The LA County District Attorney’s Office said late Thursday the dismissed charges were to have been replaced by a superseding grand jury indictment unsealed during the hearing Wednesday.
Several sources familiar with the court proceedings said it appeared the superseding case was not entered against Jackson.
Jackson, along with Jaylin Keyshawn White, 19, and Lafayette Shon Whaley, 27, were charged last year with one count each of attempted murder, second-degree robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery in connection with the shooting of Ryan Fischer.
So, is he going to be re-arrested when the superseding case is properly filed? It’s unclear as of post time.

ABC in L.A. says authorities are now searching for the suspect. Great use of resources and taxpayer dollars.
