    Poll Claims Louisiana Schools are Nation's Fourth Worst

    A recent national poll shows Louisiana schools are the fourth worst in the United States. BESE leaders say the problem is low expectations. In June, Governor Jindal blocked the state from using PARCC, the test associated with Common Core. That test is used in other states which BESE President Chas Roemer says would give a better picture of how students here perform.More >>

A man is back behind bars following an escape from the new state police substation in Breaux Bridge Sunday.

State police say Gary Abram managed to unlock his holding cell with an unknown object and walk out while officers were conducting interviews.

Prior to his escape, Abram was charged with possession with intent to distribute cocaine after authorities found four and a half pounds of cocaine in his possession.

Abrams was captured Monday after an active search by state police. Authorities say Abram did not have any help in his escape, but police are still investigating what object Abram used to release himself from the holding cell.

According to police, during his escape Abrams jumped a fence and is now suffering from a hand injury. Trooper Brooks David with State Police Troop-I says Abram was walking on the Evangeline Thruway when he turned himself to Lafayette Police.

"Mr. Abram turned himself in to Lafayette Police Department and was transported to the Lafayette Parish jail. Lafayette PD contacted us, and troopers went to the jail and picked up Mr. Abrams"

Trooper David says Abrams was transported to the Saint Martin Parish Jail where he was booked on charges of possession with intent to distribute cocaine and simple escape.
