Man faces felony counts in threats to officer at casino
BATON ROUGE - A man accused of passing out at a casino and then refusing to leave faces felony counts of public intimidation and terrorizing after authorities said he repeatedly threatened the officer who arrested him.
State police said Brandon Trask fell asleep twice at a table at L'Auberge on Tuesday afternoon and refused a security officer's request for him to leave.
When State Police Sgt. Robert Fontenot identified himself and asked the man if he was OK, Trask said he did not care who the trooper was and the arrest reports says Trask then used an obscene word, telling the officer to go away.
Trask faces several other charges including simple assault and two counts of resisting arrest.
Online jail records do not list an attorney for Trask.
