A Winnfield City Police Officer has been suspended without pay pending a Louisiana State Police investigation into an alleged police treatment complaint.

The woman, identified by media outlets as Tanisha White, reportedly suffered broken bones and severe damage to her eye. She reportedly has lost sight in her right eye because of the incident. She was transferred from the Winnfield Medical Center the night of the incident to Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in Shreveport for treatment.

The incident reportedly took place Monday, November 5. Local officials have not released the name of the officer involved. City of Winnfield officials, including the police department, would not discuss details of the event since it was turned over to State Police to investigate. State Police policy is not to offer comment until their investigation is complete and there was no timetable for when it would be completed.

Atlanta Sportsmen Celebrate 42nd Consecutive Fish Fry

‘Back in October 1976, a small group of high school guys planned a camping trip  at Pops {Leon Hanson} old hunting camp. Little did they know that some 42 years later this event would still be going strong. The first year they had about 8 or 9 members. Each year that number seemed to slowly grow, Many hunting, as well as, logging stories have been told through the years, by both the older, younger and today’s generations.

Around 1985, as they recall, the first challenge was issued by the older generation, “Bull and the boys” and the younger generation, “Coon and the boys”. The challenge was whichever team bagged the fewest squirrels had to dress the other teams kill. Well, it was close but “Coon and the boys” conceded defeat. They spent hours dressing squirrels, but the debt was paid off. The next year the same challenge was issued but “Coon and the boys” recruited more members.
