Louisiana State Trooper on leaving pending misconduct investigation

The Louisiana State Police released a news release on Oct. 6th after Unfiltered with Kiran started asking questions last Friday, Oct. 1st regarding alleged misconduct from a state trooper.

Sources told Unfiltered with Kiran the trooper, whose name we are withholding at this time, was allegedly involved in some type of inappropriate misconduct with a female college student while away at the Mississippi State/LSU football game on Sept. 25th in Starkville, MS.

Sources also said the LSP took away the trooper’s badge, gun, unit and anything else that had to do with state police equipment.

Unfiltered with Kiran did call Starkville Police as well as Oktibbeha County Sheriff’s Office questioning if they had any reports of possible citations or arrests for this specific trooper. Both agencies had no records.

LSP confirmed in their release on Wednesday that they had taken the trooper’s state police equipment. The below is LSP’s entire news release. They did not mention the trooper by name.

Following a complaint of an alleged incident involving a Louisiana State University student, an LSP employee was placed on administrative leave last week with all law enforcement property recovered pending the conclusion of the administrative investigation.

The complaint involves allegations of a misconduct incident that took place while the employee was working in conjunction with Louisiana State University. The investigation remains active and no further information is available at this time. As the investigation progresses, further information will be made available to the public.

 “Upon learning of the allegations, our agency took immediate action to begin the investigatory process and ensure that both the complainant and our employee were notified of the steps being taken,” stated Colonel Lamar Davis, Louisiana State Police Superintendent. “As the investigation progresses, we will ensure all circumstances of the alleged incident are investigated thoroughly and fairly while remaining committed to our citizens and agency personnel with transparency and professionalism.”
