Ex-Livingston Parish president's sons still in jail
LIVINGSTON PARISH - Ex-Livingston Parish President Mike Grimmer's sons are still in Livingston Parish Prison after allegedly setting their step-mother's belongings on fire.
The two sons will have a teleconference call with a judge to set the bail amount Monday. Until then they will remain in jail.
The Fire Marshal and the Walker Police Department arrested 33-year old John Grimmer and 31-year old Aaron Grimmer Saturday. State Fire Marshal Butch Browning said the hatred for their step-mother caused them to burn up a storage container that held her belongings.
Each of them were charged with the following: simple burglary, and simple arson. John Grimmer was also charged with discharging a firearm within the city limits. John Grimmer's bond was set at $50,000. Aaron Grimmer's bond was set at $40,000.
The fire started Saturday morning in the 13000 block of Pendarvis Lane in Walker. The fire caused at least five thousand dollars worth of damage to the storage container that held furniture and other personal items for Grimmer's wife.
Earlier this month, the Former Parish President was arrested for domestic abuse after a confrontation with her.
