A Winnfield City Police Officer has been suspended without pay pending a Louisiana State Police investigation into an alleged police treatment complaint.

The woman, identified by media outlets as Tanisha White, reportedly suffered broken bones and severe damage to her eye. She reportedly has lost sight in her right eye because of the incident. She was transferred from the Winnfield Medical Center the night of the incident to Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in Shreveport for treatment.

The incident reportedly took place Monday, November 5. Local officials have not released the name of the officer involved. City of Winnfield officials, including the police department, would not discuss details of the event since it was turned over to State Police to investigate. State Police policy is not to offer comment until their investigation is complete and there was no timetable for when it would be completed.
