Louisiana Sheriff's Official Receives Minor Charge After Assaulting Police OfficerBy Andrew Meyer
Mar. 12, 2014
Assaulting a police officer is a crime that earns special attention and sentencing from prosecutors and judges – unless, of course, the person doing the assaulting has special privileges that come with a badge. After shoving a Brusly police officer during a traffic stop in a drunken rage, Ronnie Graham was issued a mere misdemeanor summons for simple battery. While most people would likely face felony charges for assault on a police officer, Graham happens to be a Major at the West Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office.
