Police officer accused of kidnapping La. man
MANY - Authorities in central Louisiana have spent the weekend searching for a man they believe was kidnapped from his home at gunpoint by a Natchitoches police officer.
Twenty-five year-old Tony Procell has been missing for almost a week.
The Shreveport Times reports that security video at Procell's mobile home showed Natchitoches police Officer Robert Barthelemy leading Procell out at gunpoint last Tuesday.
Barthelemy was booked Wednesday with aggravated kidnapping and home invasion. Bond has not been set.
Defense attorney Brian McRae did not immediately return a call and an email Sunday.
Search crews have been looking in Sabine, DeSoto and Natchitoches parishes.
Texas Equusearch tells KSLA-TV it will join the search.
