Acadiana crime blotter for Aug. 21, 2014

St. Mary Parish sheriff’s deputies responded to an unusual 911 call at 3:45 a.m. Wednesday — a report of a naked man wandering around the bathroom area of the Butte Larose Welcome Center.

The Sheriff’s Office reported the suspect had already left the scene by the time deputies arrived. But a second call came in at 1 p.m. regarding the same man, exhibiting the same behavior.

The suspect, Parker Madison, 23, of Plano, Texas, was found in a stall in the men’s restroom and was booked on two counts of obscenity, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Benefit set for Jennings officer shot on duty

A benefit auction for Sgt. Ricky Benoit, who was shot and wounded while responding to a domestic dispute, is set for Saturday at the Jennings Country Club.

Benoit was responding to a domestic dispute on East South Street in Jennings on June 23 when he was shot. His partner was able to arrest the suspect, George Lowdins, 30, of Jennings.

Lowdins, who is charged with attempted first-degree murder of a police officer, was allegedly hiding in a bathroom closet when he fired the shot at the officer before trying to run off.

The gunshot wound left Benoit with limited mobility in his neck, arms and legs. Doctors said the 20-year law enforcement veteran is not paralyzed because the bullet did not sever the spinal cord.

Bidding for the auction begins at 8:30 p.m. More information is available by calling Jackie at (337) 821-5513.
