BATON ROUGE- Lt. Carl Dabadie, Jr. will lead the Baton Rouge Police Department until Mayor Kip Holden names a new chief.

The city fired Dewayne White Wednesday. White had been the chief since May 2011. Prior to that, he was on the State Police force.

Dabadie was White's Chief of Staff, and a police spokesperson said he assumes the chief's responsibilities in his absence.

Dabadie has been with BRPD for 26 years.
