Lafourche councilman accuses colleague of assault
One Lafourche Parish councilman has filed an assault complaint against another after an argument during a meeting continued outside.
Lafourche sheriff's Capt. Roy Gros tells The Daily Comet that since nobody else was present and the councilmen's accounts differ, no arrest was made pending further review.
Councilman Jerry Lafont told the newspaper that Councilman John Arnold shoved him Tuesday night.
Arnold said he just put his arm up to keep Lafont out of his face.
