LAFAYETTE, La.(AP)- Arnaudville has settled a lawsuit with a Grand Coteau man who sued the town after a police officer shot him twice in the legs during an altercation that occurred after an Aug. 22 traffic stop.

Marlon Rendell Eaglin filed suit in federal court in January, naming as defendants Dallas Barron III, the former Arnaudville police officer, Arnaudville Police Chief Richard Mizzi and the town of Arnaudville.

After reaching a settlement earlier this month, both sides filed a joint motion seeking to have the case dismissed. U.S. District Judge Richard T. Haik granted that order Tuesday.

Terms of the settlement were not immediately available.

The shooting occurred during a routine traffic stop on La. Highway 31.

Authorities said Barron attempted to arrest Eaglin after he discovered Eaglin had an outstanding misdemeanor warrant for failure to appear in court, authorities have said.

Eaglin resisted arrest and allegedly attempted to wrestle Barron's stun gun away from him and use it against the officer, authorities said.

Barron shot Eaglin once in the rear of each leg as the man allegedly was attempting to run away.

In the lawsuit, Eaglin alleged that he was not armed, posed no danger to anyone and was running away for his life.

A St. Landry Parish grand jury cleared Barron of any wrongdoing in October, finding no criminal conduct in the officer's actions.

Barron left the department late last year after finding employment elsewhere, Mizzi has said.

"I think both sides were happy to get it behind them," said Kevin Stockstill, an attorney for Eaglin.

Stockstill said the two sides began negotiating a settlement immediately after the suit was filed, a process that typically occurs before a lawsuit is filed. The delay was due to confusion about which attorney would be representing Arnaudville, he said.

Stockstill said he could not disclose the terms of the settlement.

Joy C. Rabalais, who represented the town, said by email that she did not have the authority to release documents pertaining to the settlement.

Not who you think I am, I am not Bobby. It does not matter, though. Where I find your fat ass face at, and when?

You used my name once, I told you not to let it come out of your mouth again. Let me know where to find you. I will show you what happens when you use my name. A coward is someone who calls people and pretends to be me. When I called you on it, you was the coward and denied it.

When and where?
its me

And I'm pretty sure if you were any smarter you'd know how to spell school. Which is not "scholl". So instead of trying to make other people seem stupid, try checking yourself real quick.
