Louisiana security guards accused of illegally detaining man


BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Authorities said three security guards at a Louisiana bar have been accused of using their positions to illegally detain a sound technician and search his vehicle.

The victim told Baton Rouge police he was working for a band that was performing Oct. 13. Authorities said he was sitting in his truck when he was approached by 25-year-old Devin Scarborough, 25-year-old Nicholas Fetty and 28-year-old Kevin Marshall Jr.

The Advocate reports the victim said they opened the driver's side door, pulled him out and handcuffed him. He said they took his wallet and searched his truck without his permission. Authorities said cellphone video shows the security guards detaining the victim.

The security guards were recently arrested and charged with simple battery along with another offense. It's unclear if they have lawyers.
