Local

BATON ROUGE, LA (AP) – Louisiana State Police have disclosed that they arrested a man last week accused of trespassing at the Governor’s Mansion and damaging property.

Reynard Green of Baton Rouge was booked on charges including simple burglary, criminal trespass and criminal damage to property.

East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff Sid Gautreaux says booking records show Green was found sleeping on a couch and had broken an antique table.

Authorities wouldn’t immediately comment on whether Gov. John Bel Edwards or his family were in the mansion at the time.

State Police Spokesman J.B. Slaton said Monday that Green also assaulted two law enforcement officers after being taken to a police headquarters.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether Green had an attorney.

Few details of what happened were immediately available and the incident remains under investigation.

Green remains incarcerated Monday with a total bond of $32k.
