LOUISIANA SENATOR ACCUSED OF PUNCHING GIRLFRIEND IN STOMACH AND TAKING $100!

DO YOU BELIEVE THIS OR IS IT DOMESTIC SQUABBLING!

State Senator Derrick Shepherd has been released from the Jefferson Parish Jail after being arrested on charges of simple battery, theft and unauthorized entry of a dwelling.

Thaise Ashford, 29, Shepherd’s former girlfriend, reported the aggravated burglary early Saturday morning. She says he broke into her home, punched her in the stomach, stole her cell phone and $100 cash. Deputies from the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office secured a search warrant for Shepherd’s home in Gretna. There, sheriffs say they found Shepherd on the sofa with a “young female on top of him performing what appeared to be a lap dance.”

Sheriff’s deputies identified one of two women found at his house as a community liason for a New Orleans area company. The other woman was identified as an unemployed female from Texas.
