BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- A man sought for questioning in the shooting
of a state trooper at a grocery store last week has surrendered.
Trevor Detiege, 24, of Baton Rouge, turned himself in late Monday
after his mother openly pleaded for him to surrender amid an all-out
manhunt during the weekend.
"I think he just wanted to turn himself in because his mother and his
sister made those pleas to him on TV," his attorney, Robert Randolph,
Randolph, who accompanied Detiege to police headquarters, said his
client has invoked his right to remain silent. Randolph said he is
confident that Detiege was not involved in an attempted robbery and
the subsequent shooting at a Banc One branch inside an Albertston's
store on Friday.
Detiege was booked with attempted armed robbery and unauthorized use
of a movable in another attempted robbery of a Hibernia Bank office
in Baton Rouge, police Maj. Keith Breithaupt. Detiege was jailed in
lieu of $50,000 bond.
