MONROE, La. (KTVE/KARD) — A former Lake Providence police officer was arrested in Monroe for impersonating an officer in attempt to get out of a traffic ticket.

On Sunday, November 27, 2022, around 6:51 PM, Monroe Police were patrolling on Desiard Street in Monroe, La. when they observed a blue Lincoln Town Car with a blown headlight on the driver’s side. According to police, they initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle and made contact with the driver who was identified as 28-year-old Brad A. Jordon Jr.
