White Castle reserve police officer Joseph Jordan arrested and being transported to jail

BRUSLY —- Brusly Police arrested a White Castle reserve police officer Thursday for allegedly stalking, intimidating and threatening a woman and her children.

Joseph B. Jordan Sr.,60, of Plaquemine, is accused of harassing the victim while in uniform. 

“I’m in fear of my kids and my life with him,” the victim wrote in a voluntary statement obtained by UWK

UWK does not name victims of an alleged crime.

The arrest warrant states that Jordan launched a harassment campaign by watching the victim’s home alongside calls and emails. The victim feared Jordan “may try to kidnap her juvenile child” despite court-ordered DNA testing that proved Jordan is not the father. 

“[The victim] stated that Mr. Jordan has more than one time stated to her that if no one can have you, no one will/can and that no court or person will be able to keep him from his child no matter what the courts say with the DNA test,” according to the warrant. 

Witnesses said they were afraid of retaliation from Jordan because he is allegedly a repeat offender and a police officer. 

“The victim stressed concern that nothing much may be done with him because he routinely shows up at all hours at her residence often in uniform harassing her and threatening her, keeping her from free enjoyment of her life,” read the warrant. 

UWK reached out to the White Castle Police Chief Harold Brooks in response to the reserve officer being arrested. He tells UWK he found out about Jordan’s arrest warrant an hour prior to them turning him into Brusly Police.

“I would like to get down to the bottom of it. It sounds like it’s a little bit more than the police department is saying, more to what’s happened. It’s just going to be under investigation and I’m going to let the investigation play out,” said Chief Brooks.

Chief Brooks said Jordan was hired in March 2023 to help White Castle Police during parades and had been a reserve officer with them since then until his arrest on June 6, 2024.

Hired by police with a ‘record as a violent convicted felon’

The White Castle Police Department hired Jordan “despite his record as a violent convicted felon,” according to the arrest warrant.

The courts convicted Jordan multiple times for aggravated battery, domestic abuse battery and aggravated assault, according to the affidavit. White Castle Police hired Jordan anyways. 

When Chief Brooks was asked if he was aware that Jordan was a convicted felon prior to his employment at the White Castle Police Dept., “No ma’am, I wasn’t.” He explained that when Brooks became the chief, the department did not have computers but now they do. He said they had no knowledge that Jordan was a convicted felon.

“His documented behavior aligns with a continued pattern of violent and threatening conduct,” the warrant said.
