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.
