CLINTON, La. (AP) - A Slaughter alderman has pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of interfering with a police investigation.
According to records in the case, The Advocate reports 51-year-old Tommy Boothe was arrested by Slaughter police on May 6 after he was accused of interfering with an officer conducting a traffic stop in the town.
State District Judge William G. Carmichael sentenced Boothe Tuesday to a suspended 90-day parish jail term and fined him $250 plus court costs. Boothe also was placed on supervised probation for one year on the condition he complete an anger-management course.
