According to reports, Crowley Police arrested a man Wednesday evening who was being sought for making domestic threats. Initial reports say that the man armed himself - possibly with a knife - and a small standoff ensued. But, police were able to talk the man down and he was arrested without incident. No injuries were reported.
Following a successful first season, people in Crowley have eagerly been anticipating the Greetings from Levy Park music series second season. However, because of the fact that Mother Nature is often cruel in South Louisiana, they will have to remain patient for just a few more weeks.
