OK, I am sure that everyone can recall a story from childhood where their grandmother chided: “You need to make sure you are wearing clean underwear in case you have to go to the hospital”. Apparently someone at the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office must have taken this admonition as the basis for a cruel joke for those booked into the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center after an arrest. Booking sheets now have a descriptive list of not only items in possession but habit and garb as well. Paisley boxer briefs, black bras, pink laced slips are now listed side by side with sexual devices, battery chargers and Gen 4 Glock 22’s.
So, if you did not need enough incentive to prevent your mugshot from going viral, think about what you will be wearing and carrying before you commit and drinking and driving indiscretion. It will keep you from doing a lot of explaining.
