Charges Dropped Against High School Officials

Mayor Mike Cooper, Covington, La., announced Thursday that charges will be dropped against two arrested football referees, who were detained during a high school game on October 11, 2013, for “public intimidation” of a police officer. Newly-sworn Police Chief Tim Lentz said, “We apologize with all of our hearts for the events that took place Friday night. It should’ve been handled differently.”
