[Louisiana] state senator arrested in battery, theft [also indicted on federal corruption charges]

State Sen. Derrick Shepherd was released early Sunday morning after being arrested Saturday night, accused of punching his ex-girlfriend and stealing her cell phone and $100, the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office reported.

Shepherd, D-Marrero, was arrested Saturday about 6:45 p.m. and booked with unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling, simple battery and theft of more than $500.

Speaking to reporters after his release from the Jefferson Parish Correctional Facility, Shepherd said his mother and sister had been threatened, and he tried to take action on his own instead of calling police.

He did not detail the nature of the alleged threats.

He was charged with simple battery, unauthorized entry into an inhabited dwelling and theft of over $500 after an apparent run in with his girlfriend last night, but he was arrested to tonight. Shepherd just made headlines for being indcted on charges for federal money laundering in which he's accused of taking nearly $2million for convicted felon and bond broker, Gwendolyn Moyo.

Thaise Ashford, 29, Shepherd's former girlfriend, reported the alleged aggravated burglary early Saturday morning.

She accused Shepherd of breaking into her home, punching her in the stomach and stealing her cellular phone and $100 cash, the station reported.

When Jefferson Parish sheriff's deputies secured a search warrant for Shepherd's home and arrived at his home in Gretna, deputies said they found Shepherd on the sofa with a "young female on top of him performing what appeared to be a lap dance."

Move along folks, nothing here......

I'm glad Harry Lee isn't around to see this. Harry would have had to kick someone's ass here.
