Sgt. Johnnie Estess with the Bossier Sheriff’s Office “arrested” Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington Thursday morning as part of the 2014 Bossier City Lock-Up SheriffLogoto support the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

A warrant was issued for Sheriff Whittington’s arrest with a bond amount of $800, which had to be met by accepting donations from family, friends and businesses. At arrest time, he had more than double his bond amount, and was bailed out immediately by raising $1,797 to support MDA and help cure muscular dystrophy, ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) and related diseases.
