NOPD Officer Accused of Making President Obama “Animal” Comment

Get ready to shut down the interstate: President Obama will be in New Orleans Friday

New Orleans police confirmed the reassignment of an officer following a comment regarding President Obama who is scheduled to be in the city in less than 24 hours.

WGNO sources say Sgt. Chris Landry was participating in a training exercise.  He did not refer to the president by name, but allegedly referred to him as, “…An animal.”

In a statement, NOPD Superintendent Ronal Serpas says, “It was imperative that we reassign this officer immediately after learning this serious allegation. The entire purpose of our officer re-training program is to continuously improve the way our officers interact with the public. Offensive remarks made by any officer are simply not tolerated in this department.”

A spokesperson for the department told WGNO news that the Public Integrity Bureau is investigating the allegation, the facts have not be verified, and the department would not release any additional details.
