City councilman arrested on bank fraud charges
Bossier City police have arrested Bossier City Council member James “Chubby” Knight, 60, on charges of bank fraud following a three and a half month-long investigation.
The investigation determined Knight cashed a counterfeit cashier’s check for $3980 and two bogus money orders for $975 at two separate banks in Bossier City in August knowing that each was fraudulent. Knight had received the false documents in the mail at his home. The police investigation was submitted to the Bossier Parish District Attorney’s Office which concurred with its findings and determined that the charges against Knight were warranted. Bossier City police then secured a warrant for Knight’s arrest.
Knight came to the Bossier City Police Department today after being contacted by investigators and was booked into the Bossier City Jail. He was later transferred to the Bossier Parish Maximum Security Facility. His total bond is set at $1000.
