Lafayette Developer Glenn Stewart Indicted for Mardi Gras Incident

Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office

Lafayette Developer Glenn Stewart was indicted yesterday by a grand jury on simple battery charges stemming from that now infamous Mardi Gras incident earlier this year. During the February ruckus, Stewart allegedly hit and knocked a woman unconscious.

Shortly before the Independent Parade began rolling, Erin Fitzgerald attempted to remove a banner from one of Stewart’s floats. The banner depicted Fitzgerald’s step-mother, Cherry Fisher May, and made reference to May’s 2010 DUI arrest. May works for the Lafayette newspaper, The Independent, which at the time had a long-time running “feud” with Glenn Stewart.

Lafayette Police say that Stewart and Fitzgerald got into an argument after she tried tried to take down the banner. At some point during the argument, Stewart struck Fitzgerald, knocking her unconscious.
