A St. Martinville man with a record going back to 1980 is back behind bars after authorities say he failed to return a $4,500.00 Mardi Gras ball gown.

Lafayette City Marshal Earl "Nickey" Picard says Donald Bulliard has 22 arrests on his record, including simple battery and aggravated assault charges, as well as issuing worthless checks, theft and firearms violations.

He was booked in St. Martin Parish and transported to Lafayette Parish where he was booked into LPCC on the warrant from the 15th Judicial District Court.
