On Tuesday night, Shane Ferguson turned himself into police at the 4th District police station in Algiers and was arrested on charges of domestic abuse battery.
Ferguson is the 21-year-old son of Commander Shaun Ferguson, who was officially sworn in as New Orleans Police Superintendent last Friday.
NOPD Spokesman Andy Cunningham issued a statement saying, “While this is a family matter, Chief Ferguson wants to be clear that the NOPD will conduct a proper and complete investigation just like we do in every case.”
