The Jennings Optimist Club sent out a warning Thursday to holiday travelers passing through Jeff Davis Parish: Stop and visit or pay the consequences.
This year, a couple from Salisbury, North Carolina, were the offenders stopped on Interstate 10 by Jeff Davis Sheriff’s Deputy Bill Kettler after they tried to drive past Jennings without stopping to see all that the city has to offer.

Irene and Mike Whited, of Salisbury, North Carolina, were “arrested” Thursday morning for failing to stop and visit the City of Jennings. The couple was treated to a gumbo lunch, given a key to the city and gifts from local businesses, and even got the chance to hold a baby alligator.
