Private investigator files complaint against NOPD's Albert

New Orleans, La. -

A former NOPD police lieutenant has filed a complaint with the independent police monitor and the Public Integrity Bureau against a high-ranking NOPD official for allegedly avoiding a federal subpoena.

Dwayne Scheuermann, who now works as a private investigator, was trying this month to serve a subpoena in a federal civil rights suit, brought by another former NOPD officer.  He says NOPD Deputy Superintendent Darryl Albert deliberately avoided him on multiple occasions.

Scheuerman says there are other troubling aspects to his complaint.  He said, "What I suspect is a leak by the Public Integrity Bureau to him prompting him to call me after the complaint is made.  I think any citizen that calls in a complaint and gets a call 17 minutes later would find that troubling."

Scheuermann, says Albert, had an obligation to accept the legal request to provide testimony in the federal court action.

The Public Integrity Bureau confirmed Monday afternoon it has received the complaint and is now investigating.
