MONROE, La. (AP) — Ouachita Parish sheriff's deputies have arrested a man accused of wearing body armor to the Ark-La-Miss Fair.

The News-Star reports 23-year-old Herbert Nappier of Monroe was booked Saturday into Ouachita Correctional Center on a charge of unlawful use of body armor.

In an arrest affidavit, dispatchers told Monroe police patrolling around the outside of the fairground an anonymous caller told them a man was putting on a bullet-proof vest outside the fair.

The report stated Nappier did not know it was illegal to wear body armor. He told deputies a friend gave him the vest.

It was unclear whether Nappier has an attorney.
