Former police lieutenant accused of double dipping
BATON ROUGE - A Baton Rouge police lieutenant who retired a few days ago has been arrested and accused of clocking in with the department at the same time he was working off-duty security assignments.
52-year-old Dewayne E. Lee Sr. was booked Thursday on counts of public payroll fraud and malfeasance.
Police say Lee, who retired on Saturday, is accused of working security details at the Fairfield Medical Clinic on at least seven days when he also was being paid by the police department.
The arrest warrant says Lee never had permission from the department to work security for the medical center.
It was unclear whether Lee has an attorney.
