Felony and Misdemeanor Charges Brought After Fight During Mardi Gras in Louisiana

Dr. Glenn Stewart, a Louisiana physician and real estate developer, was booked into parish jail on one count of felony second-degree battery after he allegedly punched a woman, knocking her unconscious during a Lafayette Mardi Gras parade.

The fight occurred after the victim attempted to remove a banner from Stewart’s parade float, which featured a large cutout of the victim’s stepmother’s mug shot from her 2010 DWI arrest along with insulting comments.

Stewart was initially issued a misdemeanor summons for disturbing the peace by fighting at the scene, but the charge was later increased to a felony when a follow-up investigation found that Stewart knocked the woman unconscious.

The woman was also issued a summons for disturbing the peace and disorderly conduct.

A second man was also issued a misdemeanor summons for disturbing the peace by fighting after he intervened and began fighting with Stewart.

If you have been arrested or issued a summons, contact Baton Rouge Criminal Defense Attorney Carl Barkemeyer.
