NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

An NOPD officer was placed on emergency suspension without pay after being arrested for domestic abuse.

On Monday, the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office contacted the NOPD Public Integrity Bureau about a domestic disturbance involving Officer Keith Ambrose after deputies responded to a complaint that Ambrose physically assaulted a female at his home.

Deputies arrested Ambrose shortly after the alleged incident and booked him with domestic abuse battery by strangulation.

The STPSO is the lead agency in the criminal investigation. PIB is conducting a separate investigation based on that investigation.
