Opelousas teen claims illegal search, harassment

Posted: Updated:

Alexis Ahart, 16-year-old Opelousas resident, says she was home alone last Wednesday when Opelousas Deputy Marshal Frank Angelle Sr. barged into her house without a warrant, taking photographs and sifting through the house.

"He opened the door and started taking pictures and flinging things down and I'd asked him what was going on and he said he was doing police business," says Ahart.

She also claims Deputy Marshal Angelle laid hands on her when she tried to use her cellphone to record what he was doing inside her house.

"He pushed me up against the wall that is to the right of me and he kept on embracing me back and he got in my face spit in my face he took my phone twisted it out of my arm and deleted the pictures and screamed at me basically threatened me," says Ahart.

Ahart says these photos were taken the evening of the incident before she went to the hospital and according to this report from Opelousas General she was diagnosed with a sprained wrist.

Now her father Michael Ahart is getting Marshal Paul Mouton involved.

Michael Ahart confronted Mouton last Friday, but was unable to lodge a complaint, until this Thursday when we showed up at the Marshal's Office with the incident report.""

"He came a couple days ago to my office... but he has a complaint we gonna investigate it and I can get back to you after the investigation," says Mouton.
