LIVINGSTON PARISH, LA (NBC33) — A former Livingston Parish councilman is in hot water for allegedly stealing dirt from his neighbor.
Deputies say Buddy Mincey, who lost his seat on the parish council in October, was arrested after he used his tractor to take several loads of dirt from his neighbor's land.
In the process, deputies say, his tractor damaged a newly installed water line.
Then, they tell us, Mincey's tractor broke down in his neighbor's yard, so he left it there.
He was booked with Criminal Trespass, Misdemeanor Theft, and Simple Criminal Damage to Property.
