The following is a news release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office:

Lake Charles, LA – On May 13, Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office deputies were dispatched to Cities Service Hwy. in Sulphur regarding battery on an elderly man in his car.  When they arrived,  a 67 year old man told deputies he was at the red light on Cities Service Hwy. and Summerwood Dr. when a man came up to his car and started screaming and cursing at him accusing the elderly man of trying to cut him off in traffic a few minutes before.  The man then punched the elderly man in the face causing minor cuts from his glasses, took his glasses and threw them, then got back in his car and drove off.  Witnesses were able to get the description of the car and the license plate number.

Deputies determined the car was registered to Keith B. Broussard, 29, of Sulphur, so they went to his house to question him.  After speaking to Broussard, deputies brought him back to the scene where the victim and witnesses identified him.

Broussard was arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with battery on the infirmed; criminal damage to property; and disturbing the peace by fighting.

Judge Wilford Carter set his bond at $3,000.

CPSO Deputy Patrick Bordelon was the arresting deputy.
