Louisiana security guards accused of illegally detaining man

BATON ROUGE, La. - Authorities say three security guards at a Louisiana bar have been accused of using their positions to illegally detain a sound technician and search his vehicle.

The victim told Baton Rouge police he was working for a band that was performing Oct. 13. Authorities say he was sitting in his truck when he was approached by 25-year-old Devin Scarborough, 25-year-old Nicholas Fetty and 28-year-old Kevin Marshall Jr.

The Advocate reports the victim said they opened the driver's side door, pulled him out and handcuffed him. He says they took his wallet and searched his truck without his permission. Authorities say cellphone video shows the security guards detaining the victim.

The security guards were recently arrested and charged with simple battery along with another offence. It's unclear if they have lawyers.
