Son of NOPD superintendent arrested for domestic battery

On Tuesday night, Shane Ferguson turned himself into police at the 4th District police station in Algiers and was arrested on charges of domestic abuse battery.

Ferguson is the 21-year-old son of Commander Shaun Ferguson, who was officially sworn in as New Orleans Police Superintendent last Friday.

NOPD Spokesman Andy Cunningham issued a statement saying, “While this is a family matter, Chief Ferguson wants to be clear that the NOPD will conduct a proper and complete investigation just like we do in every case.”
