The incident happened at about 9:20 a.m., the chief said. It started with a fight over an alleged theft, the chief said.

The investigation is continuing, and more arrests may be forthcoming, the chief said.

Ganson’s bond on a previous charge has been revoked, and so she is being held in the St. Landry Parish Prison.
