Officer Mark Michoud's main problem is he has LMS (Little Man Syndrome). He uses his badge as his power. He certainly is not intimidating otherwise. After all, he does possesss LMS. Some people should not be allowed to wear a badge.

Me, my husband, my son and an offduty Sheriff's deputy decided to go out for a short time and shoot pool. We were in an establishment for 1 1/2 hours. A fight broke out in front of the nightclub and we decided is was time to leave.

As we were leaving, Officer Mark Michoud immediately pointed his finger at my husband and said "YOU, are not driving anywhere, you will take a cab" We hadn't even walked out of the nightclub yet and he started yelling at us. I said that I would drive but I didn't see a problem with my husband driving because we were just fine. He then said pointing at me "YOU aren't driving anywhere either" I stood their and went "AHH" because I didn't understand what was wrong with us.

Next thing I know he pulls me off the steps of the establishment and handcuffs me and tells me I am under arrest. My son approached Mark Michoud and asked him why I was being arrested and he threw my son on the ground and handcuffed him. The off duty Deputy that was with us approached the officer and asked him why he was doing this. Officer LMS, aka Mark Michoud told the deputy that he would be arrested too if he didn't step back. I kept on asking Officer "Little Man Syndrome", what did I do and why were we being arrested and he wouldn't answer.

My husband proceeded to go to his truck and it was overheard by witnesses that Officer LMS told another policeman who drove up to the scene, to arrest my husband if he got into his truck. The officer asked what was the reason to arrest him and Officer LMS (Mark Michoud) said that it didn't matter. Arrest him for anything.

My husband went to his truck and was told he was under arrest and he asked why, and the response was for DUI. My husband said that he wasn't even driving so how could they arrest him for that. He was arrested anyway. Yes Mark Michoud, MR. LMS (Little Man Syndrome) we do have witnesses. Even the off duty Deputy is willing to testify. JERK!

We were taken down to the station and booked. I kept on asking why and they would never answer. We had to bail out after sitting at the station for 4 hours. The official charge was "Disturbing the Peace" Oh yea right!

I went down to the police station and had a meeting with the Chief of Police, Freddy Drennan, I told him the story and indicated that I was not going to allow something so unfair to happen. He told me to talk to Internal Affairs Detective Darrell Dupuy. I went over the whole story with him and told him I wanted an internal affair investigation on Officer Mark Michoud. He more or less told me if I didn't pursue the investigation, they would drop charges. I agreed to this and guess what? They didn't hold their end of the bargain up. I had to go to court and no charges were ever dropped. No but Hell No! I talked to the judge and he agreed to drop charges if we stay out of trouble for six months.

After the six months is up, it will never show up on our record. I could loose my job over this and so could my son. I have never been in trouble in my life. This is totally unfair. I have no respect for the Slidell Police Department anymore. I plan to pursue an Internal Affair complaint against Officer Mark Michoud, aka LMS (Little Man Syndrome) People like him should not even be wearing a badge. The people who he should have been harrasing were the people that were fighting in the establishment who were also watching us get arrested for nothing.

Oh by the way Mark Michoud, I know some things about you too. You certainly have a lot of complaints lodged against you. Seems to me, you have had too many Internal Affair investigations against you. Just because you are a small man is not my fault. Were you mad because I am taller than you and you are just a wee man? Why does the Slidell Police Department keep on employing someone like you? Maybe they feel sorry because it must be hard to be such a wee little man.

Response to "Laura"

AUTHOR: lel410 - (United States of America)

I have been a resident of Slidell, Louisiana since 1998.  I have come to love this community, and have nothing but the utmost respect for the Slidell Police Department.  They have seen us through two hurricanes, countless criminals swarming from New Orleans, as well as the day to day drunks, domestic fights, drug dealers, etc.  Because of the no-tolerance for ANY form of criminal activity, although it occurs, the criminals are pursued, investigated and arrested, which is what I expect of a police department.  For this "Laura" person to post such mean-spirited, low-level, bitter, hateful and personal attacks on a police officer who happened to arrest her for being drunk is typical of the criminal element mind-set.  No one ever seems to want to take responsibility for their actions.  The fact that she was partying like that with her husband and son just speaks volumes about her character in general.  The bitter tirade she spews against this officer is further indication that the best employment for her would be in politics.  I have no tolerance for ANY drunk - whether walking, riding a bicycle, a horse, a lawnmower, or especially driving a car.  I commend the officers - both of them - for arresting the "family that parties together."  If they were as belligerant in drunken reality as she is on this posting, I certainly wouldn't want them roaming the streets.  Oh and as a side not to "Laura,"  paying for and receiving an expungement only expunges the conviction - it does NOT expunge the arrest... so any employer, current OR future, can pull that up.  You have only yourself to thank for that.  The police department and court system didn't pour that alcohol down your throat.

Don't feel alone

AUTHOR: LaLa - (United States of America)

My mother was also unjustly arrested by the Slidell Police Department. She was pulled over for being "too close to the center line" and was put in jail with a DWI charge even though she passed the breath test. Her blood test came back neg and they still will not drop the charges. She was very sick with spinal meningitis... The officer made fun of her shoes, her clothes and her general appearance like he was trying to provoke her. He also left out of his report that she kept telling him she was sick. The Slidell jail is a rip off too. They could tell that something was wrong with her but they didn't try to get her any medical attention. When I got her out I took her to the hospital and they knew something was wrong right away. Her doctor said she would have died if they would have held her for three days like they wanted to.

AUTHOR: Awfully - (U.S.A.)

Laura, you opened this can of worms about the names when you posted this originally. Granted, this is a public forum and anyone can write whatever they want, including full names. If YOU wouldn't ahve ranted about this in the first place, YOUR employer wouldn't find out by reading this. YOU started this. YOU used Mark's full name which in turn grants him the right to use yours. Answer me this, if you were so hell bent on not allowing "something so unfair to happen", why did you agree to drop the charges? A woman of YOUR stature and position should be setting an example for the community, not dropping out of the game because you thought they were willing to let you off easy. I think all the LMS comments are just you trying to make up for the things you lack. I'm sure you and your son were made fun off during school. Didn't your mother or you ever say that people make fun of others becuase they're not happy with themselves? You're the pathetic one. I feel sorry for your son having to be brought up in that kind of home.



P.S. Mark did not plagiarize the poem. He cited it to the best of his knowledge. The author was unknown to him at the time and he cited the source he got it from.

Re: To both of you.

AUTHOR: A - (U.S.A.)

I respect police officers and what they do. Don't missunderstand me from this post.



I am sick of tired of OVERZEALOUS police officers that think they can do what they want and lie in reports to justify their actions. This happens all the time. Doesn't matter how long or how good of a police officer you are. It has happened to me and the police officers word was god. I did the same thing Laura did. I crossed paths with a police officer in the french quarter who I mistakingly walked in front of walking down the street. He grabbed me and I jerked away because I had no idea who was grabbing me. He arrested me for public intoxication. He told me "Nobody, pulls away from me!" Then I heard him talking to another officer about how so and so had broken up with him and he was ready to bust some balls. I was not intoxicated in the least. I know this a crock charge when you have nothing else to charge with. And how can this be done because there is no need to have proof in whether i was intoxicated or not? It gives the police officer absolute power and you are unable to prove otherwise being there is no test given. This is why its a crock charge. I had the case nolle pros. Why did I not go to trial? Because of my job also. I was applying for a new position and needed this off my record immediately. This is why I can understand Laura's position. It almost sounds like what happened to me. Again, I was not there.



Mark, I am not saying this is what you did.



Laura, I am not saying you are innocent.



But, since I was not present, I can only assume that either Laura was severely intoxicated or we have an overzealous cop who lies in reports to justify his actions.



I actually feel sorry for her son. I'm not sure whether he grabbed the shoulder or the gun but it sounds like he was looking out for his mother. I have to honestly say if anyone including a cop put their hands on my mother I would have something to say. It may not be the right thing but its a protective thing. There is always two sides though because nobody should put there hands on a police officer.



ps. there is no need for name calling. haha. However, I call the cop who arrested me with no merit alot of names. Just not on a public forum.

Names

AUTHOR: Mark - (U.S.A.)

You opened the door when you posted this vicious tirade and my full name. Every month since you posted this I am asked about this by people who see this. The potential damage you have done to me could play out in my future when I retire and seek new employment.



Your personal attack (that started on me that night) made your names easy to remember, because of the personal attack that started the night of your arrest. How can you even think it is ok for you to go on the attack and personally (and intentionally) smear me in the most public way, and not think it will eventually be answered.



You knew this could cause you harm (you said so) but you made another bad choice and posted my name and the events of that night based on your skewed memory. In the next few years I will be searching for my next job as I am nearing my retirement. This will plague my chances because poeple can find someone who doesn't have this kind of stuff out there. The potential money you may cost me is not an issue yet, but if, and when, it does it may become another legal matter you will have to face.



You alleged that the judge and court made derogatory comments concerning me in this public forum. A judge does not make things go away, a prosecutor or DA does. A judge, or DA does not make derogatory comments like that in open court. A judge decides a case after it is presented. A DA or prosecutor decides to "nolle pros" a case.



You went on diversion.........it was nolle prossed after that. You accepted responsibility for your actions and the deal is that you stay out of trouble to get a second chance on a mistake you made. Had it gone to trial the outcome would have been different, ......you would have taken it to trial and would have been exonerated or found guilty. You didn't want to go to trial and chose diversion.



It is time you realize you are solely responsible for getting arested and solely responsible for your reckless comments here. The only thing I did that night was keep and intoxicated person from getting behind the wheel of a car. The burden of proof for intoxication does not require a sobriety test...........drunk driving does. By your slurring, fumbling for your keys, holding up the post and that you reeked of alcohol you were arrested. I did't even make that chioce. That was on the order of my lieutenant who you don't even remember.



I was personally attacked that night by you then and still now. I didn't address your comments that night, as you said, because I don't banty words with drunks. I didn't care about your tirade about me and my height, and my ego that night, but I do care that my name is being smeared here. That night you were extremely drunk and I assumed your words were solely because of your intoxication. I guess not huh? You need to stop.



The money you spent to keep your name from the legal record should have made you smarter. You chose to do the same thing that got you in trouble that night. Your "mouth" has caused you to attack me again. You are responsible for your actions and had you not chosen to attack me here with your vicious comments you would not have anything to worry about.



Remember, when you write stuff like this, it can cut both ways. I did know about this for some time and didn't reply. I was going to let it go, until the phone calls and comments about this started becoming more frequent.



Maybe you should request this whole matter be taken from this website, but then you can't because you agreed by posting that you can't. You also agree that the state of Arizona has exclusive legal jurisdiction over this matter when submitting your posts.



Except for the night you were arrested, I have never spoken to you. Not before, and not since. I never posted public comments about you. You have let this eat at you, you have lashed out at me in this most public way, and now you worry about how it may play out for you. Unlike you did, I won't go to your job and complain about you.................unless you continue. If you do I will hire a private investigator. I will pay this person to investigate you personally and I will, also, find out who you work for. I will then return the kindness you have shown me. It needs to stop.



Remember you also have a job that can be affected by your actions. Obviously your complaint had no merit, or I would have been investigated. If so many complaints have been made against me this should have been thoroughly investigated. Again your comments are without merit. My agency investigates any alleged misconduct that is found to have value. Remember a complaint is not sustained unless it is found to be valid. It has to be investigated to be sustained or not sustained. This didn't even merit an investigation.



It is time to stop. As an officer I expect certain things and I expect to come across difficult people like you. I do not have to turn a blind eye to an attack such as this when you take it to a personal and public place like this. Don't throw stones when you live in a glass house.



My professional life is subject to people like you and I expect this. You have entered my personal life now..................what happens now is on you.

What were you thinking?

AUTHOR: Laura - (U.S.A.)

Mark - great poem or whatever it was - you need to apply it to yourself. You know Mark, I want to point something out to you. When I initially voiced my original post about what happened, I signed it Laura. I didn't mention any other names but that. In your message,- you mentioned that I brought up the arrest and it is my fault that everyone knows about it now after my expungement. But Mark, no one knew about the arrest in my posting just by my first name. And you are right, it could affect my job and my son's job and that is why we got the expungement. But YOU on the other hand used our names. You referred to my husband and used his last name, now everyone who wants to look, including my employment, now knows my last name and what happened. And you used my sons full name. All I ever mentioned was my son. Not his full name like you used. Now after the expungment, you have revealed all the names. Now this could affect our jobs and any opportunities that we might loose because YOU mentioned everyone's name just trying to justify your injustice to us. As an officer of the law, you should know what an expungement means.



No matter what you say, a total injustice was delivered to us that night. You know you over-reacted that night and the story changed to suit you. But now me and my son are back to square one because you revealed everything that we paid an attorney (and might I say costly to both me and my son) to expunge that night from public knowledge and might I point out, a Judge signed, and now it can and may cause us problems with our careers now that it is public knowledge again Mark. Hmmmmm, I really need to think about this and I don't really have anything else to say. Do you?

AUTHOR: Laura - (U.S.A.)

Wow - it took you two years to ever post a comment although I know for a fact that you have known about this post for awhile now. It took this long - hahahaha -



You are right, I shouldn't attack your stature - afterall 5ft 9 and 190 lbs is actually kind of short and kind of chunky but I won't say anything more about that. It is known that short males try to prove themselves.



That night, the whole situation was not handled properly. You know that - but you are a cop and a cop is always right - always. No I wasn't drunk and if I smelled soo strongly of alcohol, why didn't you give me a sobriety test, make me breathe into a breathalizer or whatever you cops do.



You make me laugh - my son tried to grab your gun - how about touching you on the shoulder - oh but that's what he did, went for your gun.......hahahahaha - you kill me you tough cop you -----hahahahaha



When I talked to internal affairs, it was told to me that the situation wasn't handled like it should have been and in so many words I was told if I didn't pursue the complaint that the charges would be dropped - - oh but that is "hush hush" and yes you have other complaints against you because you are a little man with a big gun and a big ego.



And you ask me why I brought up the fact that an off-duty officer was with us? I brought it up because he saw that the whole situation wasn't handled properly as well as the K-9 cop that was present at the time. Don't you remember him trying to talk to you about it? Why did you bring up the fact that he was my son's "significant other"? What does that have to do with anything? Pathetic!



When I had to go before the Judge, he first tried to preach to me and when he asked who the arresting officer was and your name was whispered and then there was some mumbling and next thing I know the Judge says - "Why don't we just make this go away" Wow, the Court knows you don't they?



So Mark, please do me a favor and hold your breath for that apology I owe you.

AUTHOR: Mark - (U.S.A.)

I am amazed to read this very inflamatory post by you, an employee of the Federal Government. I seems you have had this incident expunged, but since you posted here your bosses could still find out about this. Expunged or not, (by your own admission) you were arrested.



I seem to have a very different recollection of this matter, but I was SOBER so it may not be as accurate as yours. For the record I am 5'08" and about 190 lbs so I am not sure where the LMS comes from, but hey you were extremely drunk,and obnoxious, that night and could see much more clearly than I.



You do however seem to have left some things out. The off duty sheriffs deputy was mentioned. Why would you even mention that he was law enforcement, what did that have to do with your being out in the local bar room district? The truth is he was you son's, Jeffery Allday, significant other. Beyond this, I don't care it is 2008. It is and was no secret and I don't use this to cause any harm about something that is already known. But, don't leave out stuff to suit your story, you guys were out on the town and his being a deputy had nothing to do with it.



You are right, we were called about a fight. As we were standing by the bar, you exited and proceeded to grab the post in front of the door, nearly falling down. You fumbled for your keys for nearly two minutes, I remember we chuckled about it.



We did until you found your keys. Now my sobriety may skew the events, but I remember my Lieutenant (McLellan) was the person who spoke to you. He said something to the effect of "you are not going to drive are you?" and your replied that it was none of his business. You further made some very ugly comments after being offered a cab by Lt. McLellan. You further asked Lt. McLellan if he was going to follow you to your car. I never even spoke to you. It was obvious by you actions, staggering and the strong smell of booze on your breath from a few feet away that you were "tore up drunk".



At this point I was ordered to arrest you so that you didn't drive and kill someone because it was obvious you were not going to be told you couldn't drive. I walked up, still not saying anything to you, until I told you you were under arrest.



Your son, Jeffery, approached from behind and placed his hand on my right side and gun. That is a big no no. I let go of you, grabbed him and took hm to the ground. It was at that point I realized he didn't mean any harm but was trying to get my attention. He was jsut that drunk. I also did not, but could have charged him with Battery on an officer, and interfering, as he has absolutely no reason to ever touch an officer. But I am also fair and since he was as drunk as you were, I realized he meant no harm to me. He was arrested for public intoxication because of his poor choice. You were both advised of your rights, and placed into my unit for transport to jail.



Your husband, Paul Craddock, was also with you guys and in the same state of sobriety. He was told not to drive by Lt. McLellan. When I was transporting you guys to jail, Paul Craddock got into the truck and started to pull from the curb. I stopped and kept him from driving off. Another officer arrested him for being drunk in public. He should have been arrested for DWI as he met all of the requirements, but due to the busy workload it was decided he would not be driving anyhow so this would suffice.



During transport to jail, yes expunged or not you went, your demeaning, dispespectful tirade aimed at me was humorous at best. The fact that you represent the federal government and are quick to tell me that was embarrassing for you. You then continued this tirade here on the net. You opened the door so here is what I see:



You have a drinking problem.



Your report gets names wrong which hurts your credibility.



You were offered Diversion, in order to keep this off of your criminal record. You still had to accept responsibility for your actions and then stay out of trouble for a set amount of time. If you did that the prosecutor would not prosecute this case. If you did mess up you would have been tried and convicted.



Your attitude toward Slidell Police and their officers is very poor, even though you were drunk, your memory is skewed by the facts that you stated, and that you had no problem getting in your car after being so intoxicated.



You didn't even remember the other officers that were involved.



If you check my record, I have caught and helped convict many really bad guys. I have a pretty good record and reputation in Slidell inspite of your skewed and inflamatory remarks. I have dedicated 17 years at this department. I sleep well at night and can say I have only been drunk (five beers in two hours) once in my whole life. I have had a few complaints lodged against me, and that comes with the job. When officers deal with people like you this can be expected. I have also earned letters of commendation and awards from this department for my actions and dedication concerning specific events, not just general actions.



AA, EAP and a good 12 step program would probably be a good start for you to deal with your drinking. An apology from you would also be nice, but I will not hold my breath on that one. But, remember, personal responsibility is incumbant on all of us. I didn't create that situation........you did. You were wrong and I don't appreciate being smeared here for keeping someone alive and protecting them from someone who was about to get behind the wheel of an automobile and drive home drunk.



That's about all I have to add. Mark

I put the wrong name for the Internal Affairs officer. His name is Captain Durel Yates. Just wanted anyone interested to know the actual names of those involved.
