Viewers sent a video into Tip 10 appearing to depict Iberia Parish Sheriff deputies becoming physical with a man and a woman during an alleged riot early Sunday on the 600 block of Hopkins St. in New Iberia.
After a KLFY investigation it was discovered the deputy allegedly involved with hitting the man—33-year-old Christopher Butler—in the video with a night stick has since been put on administrative leave.
Butler is being held for charges relating to rioting and the woman—17-year-old LaDaedrea Moore—now says she fears for her future as a member of the National Guard.
It appears in the video that Moore was slammed on the ground and then seconds later a deputy began smacking Butler, who was handcuffed.
Moore says she was arrested while checking to see if Butler, her uncle, was okay.
"I was apparently interfering, as they said, and they slammed me on the concrete twice and arrested me and said I was resisting arrest even though I was in handcuffs," says Moore.
Moore, who suffers from scoliosis, went to the hospital Sunday night after being released by the Sheriff's Office, but facing multiple charges relating to rioting.
"I have inside bruises from my scoliosis, from being slammed on the concrete," says Moore.
Her mother, Aundrea Moore, says she will be looking into legal action against the Sheriff's Office.
"I don't even put my hands on my daughter and for me to have to look at that video and keep looking at the video over and over is doing something to me," says Aundrea Moore.
Meanwhile, LaDaedrea's aunt, Butler's mother, says Christopher was arrested on Tuesday after meeting with his probation officer.
"She kept him. She locked him up and said he started that riot. That baby didn't start that riot," says Elaine Butler.
Whether Butler started the riot or not, under Louisiana law someone who is arrested while already on probation for an earlier crime is routinely taken to jail to determine if his probation for that earlier offense will be revoked.
Butler's son-in-law, David Hardin, says he was charged with inciting the alleged riot. He says he and his friends were exiting Hopkins St. when deputies began provoking him.
"A deputy came and he shoved me and he said get off my sidewalk and I said ‘sir, I was leaving.'" When they seen the dogs and the cops come they knew what time it was and we started leaving and that's when everything happened," says Hardin.
