Lawyers face "public intimidation" charges for reacting to police kicking in their door and invading their home

"Husband and wife lawyers in Crowley, Louisiana, have been indicted on charges of public intimidation for their reaction to police who kicked down their door in response to a 911 call from a neighbor. Both lawyers—J. Clay LeJeune, 45, and Mitzi Mayeaux, 40—are well-known, the Advocate reports. Both were charged with public intimidation. LeJeune was also charged with resisting a police officer with force or violence and accused of threatening officers, the article says.
Police provided few details, but the couple’s lawyer, Barry Sallinger, said the charges relate to a May 25 incident, the story says. The neighbor who called police said a girl or woman in the lawyers’ back yard may have been screaming “help me,” adding that it may be nothing, according to Sallinger." More.
