MANY, La. (AP) - The police chief of a Louisiana town is expected to return to work soon after suffering a stroke.

Many Police Chief Roger Freeman had a mild stroke Wednesday morning, news outlets reported. Mayor Ken Freeman, who isn’t related to Roger Freeman, said the chief has plans to be back at work Monday, KTBS-TV reported.
