A Plaquemines Parish sheriff's deputy is under investigation to determine whether he's been involved with the local chapter of an alleged hate group.

The sheriff's office launched the probe of Deputy Brian Green and asked for federal assistance after receiving complaints that Green was involved with "The Proud Boys."

The group describes themselves as "western chauvinists," while the Southern Poverty Law Center defines them as an anti-muslim/anti-women hate group.
