NEW ORLEANS- An Orleans Parish sheriff's deputy has been booked with aggravated assault for allegedly boarding a school bus and brandishing a gun at her 16-year-old son.

Police spokeswoman Shereese Harper said the deputy was in uniform when she boarded the bus Thursday morning. When she got off the bus, the driver called police, Harper said Saturday.

Police later arrested 38-year-old Cotina Holmes and booked her with one count of aggravated assault.

Sheriff Marlin Gusman later issued a news release saying she was suspended from duty, pending an internal investigation and the outcome of the court case.
