A Day of Mourning - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

A Day of Mourning

Hello. This is Cynthia Arceneaux from the KPLC Newsroom. James Bertrand, the pastor known for the  "Just for Jesus" rallies"... Is in jail in Houston after Calcasieu Parish Sheriff Deputies say he bought a car with a suspended drivers license. The dealership claims Bertrand refused to give the car back. The Houston Police Department located the car and Bertrand... and arrested him.

After last weekend's violence in the Lake Area, three families are having to bury their loved ones this week. Today former Barbe football and track star Anthony "toodie" Batiste was laid to rest. And we were at the funeral. We'll talk to local religious leaders who are using these tragic events as a way to bring the community together to stop the violence.

And the Barbe Bucs are in New Orleans preparing for their historic game at the Superdome. The game is tomorrow at 8 P.M. Tickets are still available at Ticketmaster.com. Join us for news, sports, and weather today at Five and Six.
