Ledet, 30, has seven prior felony convictions on his record, including two aggravated assaults with a dangerous weapon and three fleeing arrests.

In November 2020, he faced felony charges for possession with intent to deliver and one for possession and bond is set at more than $60,000.

Then Ledet appears in court, where the judge reduces the bail to $20,000. He walked out of jail the next day.
