Bossier Sheriff's Deputy Arrested At Mardi Gras Parade
A Bossier sheriff's deputy has been booked into the Shreveport city jail on charges of domestic abuse battery.
Chad Sepulvado, 23, was arrested Saturday evening during the Krewe Of Centaur parade.
Authorities say officers were called to Clyde Fant Parkway to investigate some sort of fight involving several people. When officers arrived, they say Sepulvado had just attacked his wife and was involved in another altercation with a man who tried to intervene.
Investigators say Sepulvado got angry with his wife, struck her across the head with some type of plastic object, choked her then dragged her down an embankment. The deputy is also accused of attacking a family friend who tried to stop him.
The investigation is ongoing.
