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.

Ambrose is a 14-year veteran of the NOPD most recently assigned to the Eighth District.

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