Deputy Logan Armistead's family speaks out

By Lee Peck - bio | email

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - For the first time since his brutal attack outside a local nightclub, we're hearing from the family of off-duty Calcasieu Deputy Logan Armistead.

This comes a day after, Jake Tullos, one of the suspects charged with attempted manslaughter in the attack which happened at Nate's Place, was released from jail on a 500-thousand dollar personal assurity bond. The other suspect in the case, Anthony Chaumont remains behind bars.

Logan's brother says despite these latest developments he believes justice will prevail.

"You know there's probably mitigating factors that were involved in that decision that I don't know about, but it was a little bit of hope in this situation. It was a little bit of comfort we had, at least when he's over here fighting for his life, they had the people and that they were in jail and not with their families enjoying life - like Logan's not able to do. When you hear about that it's just disheartening. It's very disheartening to my family, but you just have to stay hopeful and our main focus here is Logan," said Taylor Armistead.

The Armistead family would like to thank local law enforcement and everyone for their prayers. Meanwhile they say Logan is still unresponsive, but making progress. He's now off a ventilator and breathing on his own.

If you would like to help the family with medical expenses an account has been set up at an Cameron State Bank - just ask for the Logan "Armistead Benefit Account."
