Louisiana man chases, throws rock at a postal worker over a missing check
A Thibodaux man irate that he hadn’t yet received a check in the mail hummed a rock at U.S. postal worker Thursday and injured her arm, Assumption Parish sheriff’s deputies said.
Deputies arrested Ronald Washington Jr., 27, after the postal worker reported the encounter near Labadieville, deputies said in a statement Friday.
The postal worker had been on her regular mail route along La. 1014 when the man, later identified as Washington, jumped in front of her postal truck and demanded she deliver his check, deputies said.
It wasn’t immediately clear what the payment was for.
