CLINTON - Support for an overnight curfew in Clinton continues even after the town's original, wide-ranging curfew ran into legal trouble.

The town canceled the curfew after a lawsuit filed by the ACLU on behalf of Clinton resident Tommy Mead. The measure banned pedestrians and drivers from the town's streets after 11 p.m., which Mead said was a problem because he often stayed late studying at LSU.

Town leaders said the measure enjoyed wide support, which is why they extended it into August. Now some people in the town who want to see a curfew brought back are working with police to find a legal way to do so.
