Boggs is the former CEO of Revolution Aluminum who was supposed to bring a $1.5 billion plant to Pineville. He missed a court date in February and was tracked down last week in Alabama by authorities. In Rapides Parish, he's accused of defrauding Red River Bank.

Boggs also has a warrant in Lafayette. He is currently being held at the Rapides Parish jail in lieu of posting a $36,000 bond and the out-of-parish detainer. He doesn't have an attorney listed.
