ST. MARTINVILLE, La. (KLFY) – A special meeting was called in the City of St. Martinville to consider an injunction against the mayor’s husband, Lawrence Mitchell to prevent him from entering onto any city property or approaching any city official. Since December of 2018, Mayor Melinda Mitchell’s husband, Lawrence, has allegedly rubbed several city employees the wrong way; including mayor pro tem Craig Prosper who currently has a restraining order on Mr. Mitchell. Some council members claim Lawrence Mitchell is preventing them from handling day to day operations, leading to the decision to move forward with an injunction to ban him from approaching city employees, entering government buildings, and property; excluding city parks. District 1 councilman Mike Fuselier, said, “It’s getting to the point where we need to do that for the safety of our employees and to be honest, to get some work done.” Safety was certainly a top priority for city attorney Allen Durand, as he entered council chambers wearing a bulletproof vest Thursday night. Durand said he was just being careful. “There’s lots of possibilities. This is a first, unusual situation calls for unusual measures.” Mayor Melinda Mitchell was not in attendance at the meeting and the only council member to vote against the motion was Juma Johnson, citing a decision made by the council earlier in the week to notify someone who was harassing employees by letter to stay away from city buildings and employees. “We just adopted a policy on this two nights ago and we agreed that we were going to send out a letter informing them what the plan was so I think that’s where we need to start”, the District 4 councilman said. Durand plans to file a petition for a temporary restraining order and injunction by noon Friday. The petition will be assigned to judge, and a hearing should take place within 10 days of filing.

MONROE, La. (AP) — A former Louisiana State University & Sterlington High School lineman says he’s adjusting to life with a titanium leg after being shot by a dog while duck hunting in Mississippi. Matt Branch tells the Clarion Ledger he was shot by the black Labrador named Tito last winter while hunting with friends near Eagle Lake. Branch and his friends were loading his truck when Tito jumped onto the truck’s bed, stepped on Branch’s loaded 12-gauge shotgun, causing the safety to turn off and the gun to fire. LSU's Matt Branch was shot by a dog. His leg was amputated. Now he plans to hunt again. https://t.co/F4TGgnt41c pic.twitter.com/acyZclz3U7— CL Sports (@CLSports) July 19, 2019 Branch says the next few moments were more about a loss of feeling than any pain. He says he awoke nearly two weeks later to find he’d lost his left leg. Branch says he’s still adjusting to his new leg and plans to continue hunting. In the weeks and months after Branch’s injury, NBC 10 told you about the communities effort to support the family and to get people to donate blood in Matt’s name.
