The DSNAP (Disaster Supplement Nutrition Assistance Program) sites such as the one in LaPLace accept applications for residents seeking "emergency food stamps" following Hurricane Isaac.
A press release from Louisiana State Police Trooper Melissa Matey describes what authorities say happened:
The subject was identified as Mark Knight (W/M, age 46) of LaPlace, LA and he was booked into the St. John the Baptist Parish Correctional Center on charges of Aggravated Assault and Terrorizing. Louisiana State Police Bureau of Investigations and detectives from St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff’s Office are conducting an investigation and further charges may be forthcoming. Bond is currently set at $20,000.00
“This is a great example of the rapid and overwhelming response possible when law enforcement agencies partner together,” said Colonel Mike Edmonson, State Police Superintendent. “This situation could have had a different outcome but, an observant state employee alerted the proper personnel and immediate action was taken to alleviate the threat to public safety. I am proud of the troopers, deputies and guardsmen that put their lives on the line and continue to do so everyday.”
