A former Thibodaux police officer has sued the city and the Assumption Parish sheriff.

He claims he was unfairly forced to resign in connection with allegations that he falsified a 2008 report about two Assumption inmates allowed to travel to the city in a parish vehicle.

The former officer, Rodney Rhodes, is under indictment for malfeasance because of incident, which resulted in a major shake-up at the Assumption Parish Sheriff's Office.

According to Sunday's Courier Rhodes also alleges that the named defendants violated his civil rights during the course of their investigation into the incident.
