Former BRPD Chief drops appeal
BATON ROUGE - Former Baton Rouge Police Chief Dewayne White has dropped his appeal to get his job back after he was fired by the Mayor Kip Holden's office in February.
In a statement White said, "As events over the past few months have proven, there are no limits nor boundaries the administration is unwilling to cross in order to further personal vendettas."
White said he dropped his appeal to get his job back because he does not want to work with the current city-parish government, and believes the appeals process is unfair.
The Baton Rouge Police Department has completed the application process for White's job, and is moving forward with selecting a new chief.
Recently, the city dropped a criminal investigation into the former chief's city-parish cell phone. The city said it was never returned when White left, and attempted to use a citizen's personal text messages to White to locate the phone.
