PORT ALLEN - A West Baton Rouge Parish sheriff's deputy arrested last week could face additional discipline after he shoved an Addis police officer and threatened another officer who, during a routine traffic stop, pulled over a car containing the deputy's wife, daughter and her boyfriend.

Maj. Ronald Graham, chief of uniform patrol for the West Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office, was arrested Wednesday for simple battery and issued a misdemeanor summons after his fiery confrontation with police officers in Brusly.

Col. Richie Johnson said an internal investigation of the incident involving Graham, a 30-year veteran of the force, is underway.

Graham referred all questions about the incident to his attorney, Glynn Delatte.

Delatte, a former law enforcement officer, said it appears everyone overreacted.
