Thibodaux, LA.- Another new development this week in a FOX 8 Defenders investigation into a Lafourche Parish man accused of animal cruelty. The Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office confirms that Warren "Chris" Michot was arrested Thursday at his home near Thibodaux.
A sheriff's spokesperson told FOX 8, Michot refused to sign a citation for violating the parish's animal noise code this week. A warrant was then issued for his arrest Thursday. Michot was taken into custody and bonded out of jail the same day.
On Monday, Michot was in a Lafourche Parish courtroom for a pre-trial conference on other similar charges he violated the animal noise code, failure to vaccinate animals and animal cruelty. He heads to trial March 14th.
