St. Martinville Police Chief Rickey Martin has been suspended.
Councilman Juma Johnson confirms Martin’s two day suspension is a disciplinary action.
Martin was appointed chief in December, under the former administration.
Melinda "Mel" Narcisse Mitchell is now mayor, having defeated incumbent Thomas Nelson in a run-off in April.
This is a developing story; we’ve reached out to the chief and the mayor for more information.
