BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Three off-duty Baton Rouge Police Department officers are under investigation connected to a float at the Spanishtown Parade.

The float included a picture of former Sons of Guns star Will Hayden and his daughter.

Hayden's daughter, Stephanie Ford, went on national television last year saying her father inappropriately kissed and touched her.

Hayden faces multiple rape charges to which he has pleaded not guilty.

BRPD Chief Carl Dabadie released a statement saying, "The theme of this float in no way represents the belief or attitude of the Baton Rouge Police Department. The struggle a sexual assault victim endures is a very serious matter and is not something that should be taken lightly or used in a satirical manner."

At this point in time no formal complaint was filed, he is basing this investigation off the rumors that were reported.
