State Police have arrested a Baton Rouge man after he threatened to kill troopers and other law enforcement officers during a traffic stop. 42-year-old Melvin Amar, Jr. was pulled over when he was observed driving a pickup truck with no tag and he was not wearing a seatbelt. Trooper Bryan Lee says during the course of the stop, Amar started making threats.
"At one point, he pointed his finger at the trooper, gesturing as if he had a gun and told the trooper that he would shoot him, making shooting gestures with his hand," said Lee.

Former soldier Ryan Taylor of New Llano has been sentenced to over 11 years in prison for manufacturing and detonating a chemical weapon at a Fort Polk training area. US Attorney David Joseph says a device containing chlorine gas exploded in the Kisatchie National Forest in April 2017. He says two responding soldiers who inhaled the chlorine gas had their military careers end because of the damage to their bodies.
