Police: Officer reassigned for remark about Obama
NEW ORLEANS - Police say they have reassigned a sergeant accused of making an offensive remark about President Barack Obama ahead of his Friday visit to New Orleans.
Police say in a news release that Sgt. Chris Landry was reassigned after making the comment about Obama during a training event Thursday. Police would not discuss details of the incident or whether Landry had been originally assigned to a role during Obama's visit.
In a statement, chief Ronal Serpas says Landry was reassigned because the police training program was designed to improve officers' interaction with the public. The department would not provide details of his reassignment.
