The famous Clay Higgins, known affectionately by the Louisiana public he served as the ‘Cajun John Wayne,’ has a new job as a Reserve Deputy Marshal for the Lafayette City Marshal’s Office.

Higgins was basically forced to retire because he refused to follow the orders of his previous boss, St. Landry Parish Sheriff Guidroz, who wanted him to ‘tone-down’ his wildly popular Crime Stoppers videos.  It followed pressure from the ACLU for naming members of a violent criminal gang known as the Gremlins in a video that went viral.

According to KLFY News, Chief Deputy Marshal Phil Conrad stated Higgins wants to “stay up to date with certain law enforcement certifications like firearms and defensive tactics and this gives him that opportunity.”

Higgins will be a guest on “Holding Accountable,” a program that airs on the Acadiana Open Channel twice per week.

Conrad also said, “In his past guest host appearances, Higgins has always held himself to a very respectable standard and we could not be happier that he has decided to join our team.”

  2. Glad to see Clay Higgins will continue his law enforcement career. He has a large following inside and outside law enforcement. Law Enforcement is not always politically correct.
