Pegues Breaks His Silence

February 27, 2007

Reported by: Britney Glaser

Daniel Pegues is the accused trigger-man behind January's shooting death of Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Deputy, Alan Inzer.  Although Pegues has been tight-lipped regarding the story so far, today he broke his silence.

It was shortly after 7:00 a.m. that Pegues was transported from the Sulphur City Jail to the Calcasieu Correctional Center for a 72-hour right to counsel hearing.  KPLC's Rhonda Kitchens was at the center and asked Pegues if he had anything to say.  "Yeah," says Pegues, "I'm being treated like a dog inside the Sulphur Jail."

The case is expected to go before a grand jury in March.  Kerry Cuccia of New Orleans will hold first seat in Pegues's defense.

    For the rest today, the rain chances remain high at 70% through the afternoon. Through most of the afternoon, there will not be much rain. But by this evening, more rain will move across Southwest Louisiana. There is a Flash Flood Watch in effect for Calcasieu, and western Cameron Parishes. That means we could see some heavy rainfall later this evening. However, there is a little bit of disagreement with the high-resolution models.
