Dwight Henry, the well-known local baker and actor sought by New Orleans police on a theft charge, surrendered to law enforcement authorities Thursday (Nov. Henry, co-star of the critically acclaimed 2012 film "Beasts of the Southern Wild," was booked after turning himself in at the Orleans Parish Prison central lockup at a.m., NOPD spokesman Officer Frank Robertson said. Henry entered their business and began removing cash out of the cash register," Woods said. He also made physical threats toward the manager of the business." The threats were not detailed in the warrant, which alleges felony theft as the only cause for arrest.
It was unclear whether Henry arrived by himself or was accompanied by an attorney. Henry, 51, was booked with one count of theft between 0 and ,499. 12, two witnesses reported Henry stuffing the cash in his pockets before leaving the business where he served as head baker until 2012. Woods, the attorney representing the business, said Wednesday that the bakery manager and the manager's family were threatened with physical harm by Henry during the alleged theft last month. Woods said police investigators have been provided with two notarized statements from the bakery manager detailing the threats.
Court records show that Henry was freed from jail within hours, released on his own recognizance under an order from Criminal District Court Judge Frank Marullo. He is accused of stealing approximately ,000 from the cash register of his former employer, the Buttermilk Drop Bakery at 1781 N. That manager has asked that his name be withheld, Woods said, because he fears retaliation by Henry or his relatives.
His most serious arrest was when he was booked with second-degree murder in connection with the stabbing death of Leroy Paige outside a Bywater apartment on Feb. Former District Attorney Eddie Jordan's administration ultimately refused to charge Henry in that case.Assistant District Attorney Christopher Bowman, spokesman for current DA Leon Cannizzaro, said current prosecutors are taking a fresh look at that case to better understand why the charge was refused in September 2006.Henry was cast as Hushpuppy's father, Wink, in the Academy Award-nominated "Beasts of the Southern Wild." His performance in that film helped land him other roles.According to our research of Nevada and other state lists there were 6 registered sex offenders living in Las Vegas as of September 20, 2016.The ratio of number of residents in Las Vegas to the number of sex offenders is 99,404 to 1.
