A Baton Rouge area children's physician is facing assault charges in an alleged racial incident earlier this week near LSU lakes.
Officials said yesterday that Dr. Shane McKinney had been booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on one count of simple battery.
McKinney is accused of punching a female Southern University student-athlete and shouting a racial slur at her.
Our Lady of the Lake Hospital confirmed McKinney worked at their facility, and he had been placed on administrative leave.
