LSU cornerback Tharold Simon was arrested in Eunice Thursday night. His car was blocking Beulah Street when a police officer asked him to move it.

Simon reportedly told the officer, “I own Eunice,” and “I’m gonna buy these projects and you are gonna be mine.” The officer’s report states when Simon moved his vehicle, he spun his wheels, “backed the vehicle in an aggressive manner” and cranked the radio up.  Simon reportedly told the officer that “the mayor was on [his] side” and writing a ticket would cost him his job. Simon faces charges of public intimidation, resisting an officer, and a noise violation. He has bonded out.

“In the United States, our justice system says everyone is innocent until proven guilty,”   – Eunice Mayor Rusty Moody

Simon is expected to be selected in the middle rounds of this weekend’s NFL Draft. He’s a graduate of Eunice High. City officials are scheduled to proclaim today “Tharold Simon Day.” Eunice Mayor Rusty Moody says tonight’s ceremony will go on as planned.
