Man gets new charges in attack on officers
JEANERETTE - New charges have been filed against a Jeanerette man who was shot by police after investigators said he stabbed an officer in November.
Deputies arrested 42-year-old Lance Dauphine Friday with aggravated battery, aggravated assault and attempted home invasion.
The charges stem from a Nov. 16 incident. As two officers responded to a complaint about a suspicious person, they said Dauphine attacked them, stabbing one.
Dauphine was shot, and an Iberia Parish sheriff's spokesman says the officers were cleared of any wrongdoing.
The new charges are lower than those on which Dauphine originally was booked.
He has been in the Iberia Parish jail since Nov. 17 on two counts of attempted first-degree murder of a police officer. It was not immediately clear whether he has an attorney.
