N.O. officer suspended, accused of malfeasance
NEW ORLEANS- New Orleans Police have suspended a veteran officer for allegedly harassing a woman she believes was dating the same man she is.
Authorities filed a bill of information Jan. 16 against Officer Carolyn Dalton, accusing her of malfeasance in office.
The alleged victim filed a complaint Jan. 8 with the St. Bernard Parish Sheriff's Office, saying Dalton had come to her home in Chalmette, followed her in a car and demanded hat she stop seeing a man that both women were allegedly dating.
The complaint says Dalton used profanity and threatened that if the woman didn't stop communicating with the man, she was "going to get her."
Dalton was reassigned to desk duty after the complaint was filed.
