An encounter in a Pompano Beach Walmart parking lot led to a year and a day suspension of an attorney by the Louisiana Supreme Court.
The attorney exited his vehicle in response to a car horn. He began screaming profanities at abnother driver and then threw several punches. When the police were called, the attorney fled the scene but was apprehended and charged with simple battery.
The attorney pleaded no contest and was sentenced to six months supervised probation with conditions.
In the bar matter, the attorney claimed that the other driver was the aggressor but failed to provide probation and treatment records to the Office of Disciplinary Counsel. (Mike Frisch)
