A yearlong saga that began in a restaurant parking lot ended in a courtroom Thursday when former Bellevue Police Chief John Stacey was acquitted of a misdemeanor charge of transferring a firearm without a certificate.
It was at a Village Inn in Bellevue where then-Gretna City Administrator Colleen Lawry told Stacey she was worried about her safety. He lent her two guns so she could see how they felt before she purchased her own, Stacey testified.
