BAKER - Police arrested a member of Baker's city council Thursday over an unpaid pastry.

Police booked John Givens the day after officers obtained an arrest warrant for felony theft and abuse of office.

Investigators said on Tuesday they were called to Ragusa's Meat Market where a clerk told them Givens ate a pastry and refused to pay for it. Documents obtained by WBRZ News 2 said Givens showed the clerk a badge and suggested the only reason the business was open was because Givens used his position to approve its license.

Givens was given a $1,000 bond after he was booked into the parish prison Thursday.
