Excessive Force Investigation Clears NOPD Commander

A NOPD Force Investigation Team says a Commander in the Department did not violate its use of force policy.

The committee's findings on the actions of Commander Octavio Baldassaro were released yesterday clearing him of wrongdoing.

A formal complaint was filed against Baldassaro in April over his arrest of nursing student Taylor Bruce at French Quarter Fest.

Police officials also said they are still reviewing the incident for training to determine better ways to handle those situations.
