BATON ROUGE - Authorities in Baton Rouge said people with outstanding warrants over traffic fines can clear their records without facing a trip behind bars this weekend.

Baton Rouge Police said Dec. 5 is Traffic Bench Warrant Amnesty Day for East Baton Rouge Parish. Law enforcement and court officials will let people pay off their fines without fear of arrest for that day only. If people can't pay off their full slate of fines, they can be enrolled into partial pay programs to help settle the debt.

BRPD said the amnesty does not extend to felony warrants, just misdemeanor traffic warrants.

The amnesty event will take place at the MLK Jr. Community Center at 4000 Gus Young Avenue from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. this Saturday, Dec. 5.

People with questions can call (225) 389-3182 or check out the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office warrants website as well as the Baton Rouge city court warrants page.
