Sheriff's deputy in Louisiana arrested on voyeurism charge
HAHNVILLE, La. (AP) - Authorities in Louisiana say a sheriff's deputy arrested on charges including voyeurism has been fired.
The St. Charles Parish Sheriff's Office tells news outlets in a statement that Cpl. Ryan Weaver was arrested Wednesday morning on suspicion of felony video voyeurism and obstruction of justice. The sheriff's office says the 42-year-old worked with the patrol division for four years and had been suspended since May 23 when it started investigating a complaint.
The statement says the complaint was reported to have happened May 17 and involved Weaver's extended family members. The sheriff's office did not provide more information to protect the identities of those involved and because it is still investigating.
Weaver is jailed, and his bond has not been set. It is unclear if he has a lawyer.
