In a complaint that’s being investigated by the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office, GSU officer Kin Fulton alleged that his own supervisor, Captain Bailey, battered him during a traffic stop at GSU’s library parking lot last Wednesday.
The incident is under an internal investigation at Grambling State University, and also under criminal investigation by the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office.
At Grambling State University, it’s the duty of university police officers to keep law and order on campus, and to serve with “professionalism,” like it says on their cruisers.
But a fight between two university police officers could end up costing Officer Fulton and Bailey their jobs.
University officials won’t say much, except to confirm that one officer went to the emergency room and was released.
“They’re trying to cover it up for some reason. We don’t know why. They don’t want us to know which officers were in the altercation,” said business major Marcus Anderson.
“There are the people we pay tuition for. Part of our fees go to the authorities. When something happens like that, we should know. We need to know where our money’s going.”
University officials say next week, there will be a hearing to determine the fate of the two officers’ jobs as university police.
