Two Louisiana cops,  jail guard allegedly spotlighted doe

January 10, 2013 at 10:38 AM

WINNSBORO, La. (AP) — Two Winnsboro police officers and a Franklin Parish jail guard are accused of spotlighting a doe and shooting it from a patrol car in Winnsboro City Industrial Park.

Officers Chester Coleman, 34, who allegedly shot the deer from his squad car while on duty about 8 p.m. Dec. 30, was booked Monday on a charge of malfeasance in office, said Adam Einck of the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries enforcement section.

Coleman, of Enterprise, and Joshua Martin, 31, of Winnsboro, who was off-duty when the deer was shot, were both fired Monday, Winnsboro Police Chief Lester Thomas said Wednesday. Sheriff Kevin Cobb could not be reached for comment Wednesday about Corrections Officer Hunter Guimbellot, 22, of Winnsboro.

All three were cited with hunting from a moving vehicle and taking a deer during illegal hours using artificial light, and Coleman also was cited with hunting without basic or big game licenses and with failing to comply with deer tagging requirements, Einck said.

He said Coleman was arrested Monday and the other two were ticketed Friday.

An informant notified wildlife agents of the incident, and agents seized both Martin’s .308 rifle and the deer, Einck said.

Malfeasance in office, a felony, carries up to five years in jail and $5,000 in fines. The hunting offenses can be sentenced by 15 to 120 days in jail and fines of $50 to $950, depending on the offense.
