Chief arrested on theft, malfeasance charges
BRUSLY- The town's police chief surrendered to deputies in West Baton Rouge on charges of theft and malfeasance in office.
The arrest stems from an investigation that alleged Chief Jamie Whaley had been using a city credit card to put fuel in his personal vehicle for the past year.
The 36-year-old was booked into jail for illegally spending $1,120. He posted bail and was released hours later.
