LAFOURCHE PARISH, LA (WVUE) -

Lafourche Parish deputies arrested a Golden Meadow man who failed up to show up to court. 40-year-old Rickey Cheramie was scheduled to appear before a judge on several charges, including theft, trespassing, and drug possession charges.

Since Cheramie did not appear for his hearing on Monday, Judge Walter Lannier III issued warrants for 10 counts of contempt of court with a $100,000 bond each, totaling $1 million.

Deputies arrested him Wednesday at a home in Cut Off. Cheramie was booked at the Lafourche Parish Detention Center in Thibodaux.
