From The Times, too good to pass up. Make all the snarky remarks you like about Haughton and Princeton, but Blanchard is right up there . . .
Blanchard police officers say a group of men were firing shots in Blanchard at about 2 a.m. Saturday night when one of them apparently collapsed to the ground. The group of friends, number unknown at this time, thinking they had accidentally shot their friend, put him in the back of their truck and rushed him to Willis-Knighton hospital on Greenwood Road in Shreveport. While putting him in the truck, the friends severely cut their friend on the ribs on the truck door, leading them again to think he was bleeding from a bullet wound. Upon arrival at the hospital, they discovered the man had not been shot after all.
