CLINTON - A Slaughter alderman pleaded no contest Tuesday to a misdemeanor charge of interfering with a police investigation, according to records in the case.
Tommy “T.J.” Boothe, 51, 2831 Rush St., was arrested by Slaughter police on May 6 after he was accused of interfering with an officer conducting a traffic stop in the town, 20th Judicial District Attorney Sam D’Aquilla said in May.
Twentieth Judicial District Judge William G. Carmichael sentenced Boothe to a suspended 90-day parish jail term and fined him $250 plus court costs. Boothe also was placed on supervised probation for one year on the condition he complete an anger-management course.
In addition to the misdemeanor count of interfering with a police investigation, Boothe originally was booked at the Parish Jail on two counts of resisting arrest by force and two counts of public intimidation, booking records show.
