LAKE PROVIDENCE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - On February 3, 2014, investigators with the Louisiana State Police Bureau of Investigations arrested a Lake Providence police officer for one count of malfeasance in office. The arrest is the result of a joint investigation conducted by the Louisiana State Police Bureau of Investigations, the East Carroll Sheriff's Office and the Lake Providence Police Department.

An Arkansas resident advised investigators that he was traveling through Lake Providence and was stopped by a Lake Providence police officer for speeding. The Arkansas resident advised investigators that the Lake Providence police officer requested $50 from the driver in lieu of issuing a citation.

Investigators arrested Clint Reed, 51-years-old of Lake Providence, for one count of malfeasance in office. Reed confessed to investigators during questioning that he requested and took $50 dollars instead of issuing the citation.

Reed faces up to a $5,000 fine and 5 years in prison if convicted.

The Louisiana State Police on-line reporting system is available to the public through a secure reporting form that is submitted to investigators. Citizens can access the form by visiting www.lsp.org and clicking the suspicious activity link.
