LSU PD Officer Accused Of Beating Girlfriend Resigns

LSU PD Resignation

(WBRZ News 2) A shakeup at the LSU Police Department this week led to the retirement of Police Chief Lawrence Rabalais and the resignation of K-9 Officer Blake Devillier.

The Investigative Unit has learned Devillier went for an interview as a road deputy in Iberville Parish within the past ten days.

"I won't even consider hiring him, with all of his problems at LSU," Sheriff Brett Stassi said.

The WBRZ Investigative Unit obtained disturbing paperwork on Officer Blake Devillier that showed he was accused of abusing his girlfriend and K-9 police dog issued by LSU. Those details are highlighted in a protective order filed by the alleged victim.

The WBRZ Investigative Unit has not been able to confirm if the resignation of Devillier is tied to Rabalais' retirement through university officials, but sources close to all parties say it could be one of the many reasons for it.

In the restraining order filed on March 22, 2017, the alleged victim said, "Blake Devillier came into my workplace, and I told him he is not allowed... He said if I don't have a police report, then he can be there, so I called the Sheriff's Office."
