CROWLEY, La. (AP) – A Crowley attorney claims that police held his two children at gunpoint and shocked him repeatedly with a stun gun when responding to a call from a neighbor who mistakenly thought she heard someone in distress.
The Advocate reports the lawsuit was filed Friday. That’s two days after a grand jury indicted the attorney, 45-year-old Clay LeJeune, (le JOON’) and his wife, 40-year-old Mitzi LeJeune, for threatening and arguing with police during the May 25 incident.
The lawsuit, seeking unspecified damages for civil rights violations, also alleges Crowley Police Chief K.P. Gibson might have a vendetta against the LeJeunes because they knew of certain personal indiscretions of the chief.
The couple’s attorney declines to elaborate.
Gibson writes in an email that he doesn’t know what LeJeune’s talking about.
