YOUNGSVILLE, La. (KLFY) – Embattled Youngsville Police Chief Rickey Boudreaux allegedly threatened one of his officers by text over the weekend.

According to a letter sent by Officer Tim Mikhael’s attorney, Boudreaux sent a threatening text to officer Mikhael around noon.

News 10 obtained a copy of the letter and Boudreaux’s text that reads in part:

“People like you make me sick to my ******* stomach. Just remember what goes around, comes around. I’m still the chief and I still make decisions. Watch what is coming.”

News 10 spoke to both attorneys representing Mikhael and Boudreaux. We contacted Allyson Prejean who represents Officer Mikhael. She emailed a copy of the letter she sent to Boudreaux’s attorney saying in part quote, “I kindly advise your client that further harassment of and threats against my client will be met with swift criminal and civil recourse.” 

Pat Magee is representing Boudreaux in a civil lawsuit Boudreaux filed against the Youngsville City Council. Magee said he feels Boudreaux will be cleared of any ethical misconduct on malicious allegations by the council, but did not comment on Officer Mikhael’s allegations. 

He also said Boudreaux was scheduled for a medical procedure Friday to stretch a blocked artery, but his blood pressure was too high. It was rescheduled for Monday, July 31.
