BRPD officer on leave after DWI & speeding 90mph

BATON ROUGE, La. — A Baton Rouge Police officer has been placed on administrative leave after he was given a summons for DWI and reckless operation.

Markeith Hatfield, who has been a BRPD officer for four years, was pulled over by Louisiana State Police for going over 90 mph and driving while intoxicated on Siegen Ln. on Friday, April 7. The speed limit was 45 mph.

LSP confirms issuing a summons to Hatfield at 6725 Siegen Lane on April 7th for DWI and reckless operation. A summons does mean the officer was arrested, but it does not require the person to be taken to jail and booked. In this case, Hatfield was issued a summons requiring his signature, which serves as his assurance to appear in court for his assigned court date.

Hatfield is assigned to work at first district at the Baton Rouge Police Dept. and was placed on administrative leave effective April 7th.
