Shreveport Police Officer Arrested for Battery on Another Officer
SHREVEPORT, LA- A Shreveport police officer is facing several charges, including battery on another officer, after being arrested on Wednesday, June 14th.
Shreveport Police Corporal LaBrian Marsden, 35, was arrested on June 14th, 2023, following an alleged domestic violence incident involving a victim who also serves as a Shreveport Police officer.
Officers responded to an incident at the Shreveport Police Training Academy located at 6440 Greenwood Road. Marsden was taken into custody and charged with one count of Domestic Abuse Battery, one count of Cyberstalking, one count of Stalking, and one count of Battery of a Police Officer. The battery on an officer charge stems from reported actions that took place during his arrest. This investigation is on-going.
Chief Wayne Smith immediately placed LaBrian Marsden on administrative leave pending the results of the investigation. Marsden has been employed by the Shreveport Police Department since August of 2009.
This isn't the first time Marsden has been investigated. In July, KTBS reported that he was the subject of an internal investigation related to his care of K-9 officer Enzo. Enzo was found tied up to a kennel located outside in the sweltering heat. There was no shade available for the dog, and he could not reach his water bowl.
Marsden's K-9 partner, Enzo, was subsequently removed from his care, and Marsden was reassigned to patrol.
At the last check of city jail records, Marsden is listed as currently still in the Shreveport City Jail, no bond amount has been set. This is a current, ongoing investigation, further details will be reported as they are released.
