He is accused of falsifying subpoena signatures.

The investigation began last month when detectives with the Louisiana State Police Bureau of Investigations received information “alleging multiple signatures had been forged by Migues on official court documents,” State Police Troop I spokesman Thomas Gossen said.

The investigation alleges Migues forged the signature of multiple individuals showing they had been served with a subpoena in lieu of making personal service.

Based on this information, investigators secured an arrest warrant.

The investigation is active and ongoing, Gossen said.
