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

James Howard Jackson, 19, was arrested Wednesday “due to an administrative error” about five months after he was released from jail while awaiting trial, 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 U.S. Marshals Service offered a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to his arrest.

Jackson’s arrest comes as one of the three men charged in the case pleaded no contest to second-degree robbery.

Jaylin Keyshan White, 20, was immediately sentenced to four years in state prison, Deputy District Attorney Michelle Hannessy told NBC4.

Prosecutors said Jackson and two other gang members were looking for expensive French bulldogs to steal, then tracked down Ryan Fisher as he walked Lady Gaga’s dogs near the famous Sunset Boulevard. They brewed and stole. Fisher was with the pop star’s three dogs, Asia, Koji and Gustav.

During a violent struggle, Fisher was hit, choked and then shot in an attack captured by a doorbell camera at a nearby home.

In the video, Fisher screamed, “Oh, my God! I was shot!” and “Help me!” and “I’m bleeding from my chest!”

Fisher lost part of his 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 they were tied to a pole and asked about Lady Gaga’s offer of a $500,000 reward if the dogs were returned “no questions asked.” The singer was in Rome during the filming of a movie.

This woman is accused of receiving stolen property and the other suspect’s father is also accused of helping her to prevent the arrest of the accused.

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