Joe McKnight’s Alleged Killer, Ronald Gasser, Arrested On Manslaughter Charge


It took nearly a week, but it appears justice is being served in the death of Joe McKnight.

Ronald Gasser, the man accused of shooting and killing the former NFL running back at an intersection in broad daylight, was arrested Monday on one count of manslaughter, according to Jefferson Parish (La.) Correctional Center records.

Gasser allegedly killed McKnight last Thursday in a road rage incident Terrytown, La., reportedly shooting him three times and at one point telling the 28-year-old, “I told you, don?t you f? with me,” according to an eyewitness.

Yet Gasser initially wasn’t even charged in the incident despite turning himself over to police and was released later that night after briefly being taken into custody.

In another strange twist, Gasser also was cited in a 2006 road rage incident at the same exact intersection. He reportedly got into a verbal confrontation with a man before following him to a gas station and striking him several times.

A news conference was scheduled for 11 a.m. ET in Jefferson Parish on Tuesday to address Gasser’s arrest.
