Ryan Tyler Labruyere, 45, of Cordova, was charged with disorderly conduct and harassment in the second degree. Labruyere pled not guilty at a Wednesday, Oct. 28 arraignment. Labruyere’s request for a court-appointed attorney was approved by District Magistrate Judge Judson Adams.
“I’m not going to sell my car or my four-wheeler to go to court over a fabricated lie,” Labruyere told Adams.
Labruyere is accused of committing disorderly conduct by challenging another person to fight or engaging in fighting other than in self-defense; and committing harassment in the second degree by insulting, taunting or challenging another person in a manner likely to provoke an immediately violent response, according to court documents.
Both disorderly conduct and harassment in the second degree are class B misdemeanors. Harassment in the second degree is punishable by a fine of up to $2,000 and imprisonment of up to 90 days. Disorderly conduct is punishable by a fine of up to $2,000 and imprisonment for up to 72 hours if the offense is a first conviction, or imprisonment for up to 10 days if the offense is a second or subsequent conviction.
The offenses allegedly took place Oct. 18 in Cordova, according to court documents. A pre-trial conference is scheduled for Dec. 8.
In 2019, Labruyere was convicted of a separate charge of harassment in the second degree. In 2008, Labruyere was convicted of vehicle theft.
