BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - An Ascension Parish Sheriff’s deputy was fired after being arrested Tuesday for a domestic dispute, according to APSO.

The following information is from APSO:

Early Tuesday morning, January 5, deputies received a call regarding a domestic disturbance in progress.

When deputies arrived at the victim’s residence, they located Detective Tim May and a former girlfriend involved in a domestic dispute.

After a thorough investigation, May was fired following his arrest, according to Sheriff Bobby Webre.

As the investigation continued, it was learned that the two were involved in a romantic relationship that recently ended in October 2020. Detectives also discovered that several domestic disputes occurred during the relationship but were never reported by the victim.

“We are not above the law and will be held to the highest ethical standard that is expected of a leading law enforcement agency,” said Sheriff Webre. “APSO will always be intolerant on criminal behavior, to include circumstances when our employees are accused of unlawful behavior.”

May was arrested and charged with unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling, stalking, and battery of a dating partner.

He was booked into the Ascension Parish Jail late Tuesday evening.

May was employed with the sheriff’s office since January 1999 and worked in various assignments.
