Trapper Joe Lafont and Trigger Tommy Chauvin traveled from the deep swamps in Louisiana to Benton on Saturday for the 34th annual Boys & Girls Club of Saline County, Arkansas fundraiser.
The stars of the popular History Channel television reality show “Swamp People” were the honored guests of the “Get Swamped”-themed party.
Lafont and Chauvin were interviewed by Steve “Wildman” Wilson, public affairs coordinator for the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission and host of the Talkin’ Outdoors television show. Guests then asked numerous questions — from “How many alligators have you killed?” to a little boy asking if he could go gator hunting with the two.
The Louisiana natives were greeted with an Arkansas Razorback “hog call” from the audience.
A few weeks ago I posted that Trapper Joe was to appear in a pre-trial conference on Thursday, Aug. 9, 2012 for domestic abuse and assault charges.
CajunRadio.net is reporting that there was a re-scheduling of the conference for Thursday, Aug. 16th, 2012 at 8:45 AM+EST.
I will continue to update as more details come in. For past reports on this news story, click here.
