Holden says "pattern of behavior" led to chief's firing

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Mayor-President Kip Holden is responding to the latest round of accusations floating around his decision to suspend and potentially fire Police Chief Dewayne White.

Holden said it was a pattern of behavior that led to his staff's recommendation that White be fired.

"This has been going on for a while and I didn't want to rush to judgment, but when you see a pattern of things evolving, the case you then make to the people is a lot more solidified because you've seen this pattern over and over again," Holden explained.

The Baton Rouge Police Union supports the mayor's decision, but Thursday the Magnolia State Peace Officers released a statement in support of White.

The chief and mayor will sit down on Monday for a hearing concerning the chief's future. The chief requested that meeting be open to the public.

Look for more on this controversy later in the day.
