Nicholls State police dispatcher charged with disturbing the peace
THIBODAUX - A Nicholls State University Police dispatcher faces a disturbing the peace charge after the staff at a Thibodaux apartment complex reported he yelled and cursed at them and that they were afraid of him.
The Courier reports the Sheriff's Office responded Dec. 11 to Bayou Reserve Apartments after getting a complaint that 41-year-old James Grayden was being aggressive at the main office.
The complex manager told Deputy Jeremy Milstead that Grayden asked why staff members had entered his apartment, claiming they had no right to do so. She said he yelled and cursed at the staff, refusing to leave.
Deputies arrested Grayden and charged him with disturbing the peace.
Nicholls State University spokeswoman Stephanie Verdin says the university "does not comment on employees' private matters."
It's unclear if Grayden has an attorney.
