Officer Adrian Buchanan began his career in Law Enforcement in 2011. He is currently working in the Patrol Division of the Thibodaux Police Department.
Here is one of his stories:
A power line was arcing along St. Mary Highway, causing a power outage throughout certain parts of the city. Until we got portable stop signs set up, Officers were required to direct traffic at the major intersections. I was directing traffic and traffic was flowing along well. Then a bee buzzed by my ear. I swatted at it. Then another bee started buzzing around me. I swatted at the second bee with my other hand. I moved back a little as the bees continued to fly and buzz around my head, swatting at them with both hands. I heard tires screeching, but I was too worried about not getting stung by the bees to pay much attention. Once the bees were gone, I realized by the four vehicles stopping and proceeding again that they had no idea that I was swatting at insects, but thought that I was waving all of them through the intersection. Thankfully, no accident occurred.

Here is one of her stories:
Years ago I stopped a young woman for speeding on North St. Patrick Hwy. I had my window down and my door ajar as I instructed the driver to step out of her vehicle. I could plainly see her unbuttoning the top few buttons of her blouse, and then she slowly and seductively moved her legs, complete with stiletto heel, one at a time out of the door of the vehicle. She had the biggest smile, and then a sudden look of horror as she turned to her female passenger and exclaimed, “Aw, sh#t! It’s a girl” We had audio/video cameras in our vehicles at the time, so the entire incident is recorded. Yes, she DID get a ticket.
Officer Noble Clement began his career in law enforcement in 2003. He is currently serving in the Thibodaux Police Department Traffic Division.
Here is one of Noble’s stories:
I was involved in a foot pursuit, when I was younger of course, and did not see a clothes line in the back yard I was running through. Needless to say the clothes line caught me, and I went tumbling down. I quickly got up; looking around to see if anyone saw what happened. I didn’t see anyone, so I continued running. I learned that a co-worker caught the guy I was pursuing. Not one of my proudest moments.
