LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) — A Louisiana prosecutor has filed charges against an activist who grilled hot dogs and hamburgers near the mayor's home during last summer's protests against racial injustice. Her attorney says Tara Fogleman will plead not guilty on Tuesday to misdemeanor charges of disturbing the peace and obstructing a public passage. She was arrested in August while many in Lafayette were protesting against the death of a Black man shot by police outside a convenience store and against a decision to close four recreation centers in a predominantly Black part of Lafayette. Mayor-President Josh Guillory has said his wife and children had to witness civil unrest.
