Orleans sheriff's deputies under investigation following Cam Jordan nightclub incident

The Orleans Parish Sheriff's Office has launched an internal investigation of three deputies who reportedly refused to investigate a Warehouse District nightclub disturbance Sunday (Sept. 6) involving New Orleans Saints defensive end Cam Jordan.

"We will be reviewing the actions of the deputies to determine if any policies or procedures were violated," Sheriff Marlin Gusman said in a written statement emailed late Thursday afternoon. "We will follow all leads in this investigation."

The three deputies were working a security detail outside Republic New Orleans, 828 S. Peters St., when a man and a woman approached them to say that Jordan picked up the man after he confronted Jordan about an encounter with the man's girlfriend while inside the club, and later sprayed champagne on the couple, according to a New Orleans police report released Wednesday.

The deputies refused to investigate, the NOPD report states, and told the couple to speak with NOPD or State Police.

After the couple reported the encounter with Jordan to officers at NOPD's 8th District station on Royal Street, NOPD Sgt. Samuel Dupre returned with the couple to the club and again sought assistance from the three deputies.

"Because the deputies were working at the location of the incident, had knowledge of the incident, knew which witnesses were present when the incident occurred, and knew the location of any surveillance cameras, Sergeant Dupre attempted to get the deputies to investigate the incident," the NOPD report says. "The deputies made no attempt to investigate the incident."

One of the deputies told Dupre that he needed to speak with a supervisor, the report states, while another deputy told Dupre that about 10 Saints players were in the packed club at the time.

The club was closed at the time of Dupre's arrival and, citing a lack of available evidence, Dupre did not seek out an arrest warrant, the NOPD report says. New Orleans police are reviewing video surveillance regarding the ongoing investigation.

Jordan's attorneys, Brian and Ralph Capitelli, released a statement Wednesdaycalling the allegations against him "ridiculous."

"This complaining individual is apparently a jealous boyfriend who followed Mr. Jordan into the men's bathroom," the attorneys said. "Mr. Jordan did not commit any criminal offense whatsoever and continues to remain cooperative with any law enforcement inquiry into this situation. As attorneys for Cam Jordan our investigation reveals that there was no criminal misconduct committed by Mr. Jordan."

Saints' Cam Jordan: 'I can have any b---- I want,' NOPD report says

New Orleans Saints defensive end Cam Jordan sprayed champagne on a man and his girlfriend and bragged about having "any b----" he desires during what authorities have classified as a "disturbance" Labor Day weekend at a Warehouse District club, according to an New Orleans police report.

The newly released NOPD report details part of the allegations against Jordan, who was not arrested following the encounter early Sunday morning at Republic New Orleans, 828 S. Peters St.

According to the report, Jordan and about 10 other Saints players were at the club early Sunday morning. Around 2:20 a.m., Jordan walked by a couple who were at the club celebrating a family member's birthday. The report does not detail that initial encounter, though a report from WWL states that Jordan patted the woman on her buttocks.

The woman's boyfriend followed Jordan into the club's bathroom, the NOPD report states, "intending to admonish him about being disrespectful."

Inside the bathroom, the report states that Jordan told the man, "I can have any b---- I want." When the boyfriend told Jordan that the woman he crudely referred to as a "b---h" was his girlfriend, Jordan asked the man how much he weighed, the report states.

"Mr. Jordan suddenly picked up (the boyfriend) and held him high in the air against his will while passerby took pictures," the NOPD report says. The boyfriend told police that Jordan told him "he had struck other people for less."

Jordan put the man down and left the bathroom, the NOPD report says. Later, when the boyfriend returned to his girlfriend, Jordan approached the couple. He shook a bottle of champagne in his hands and, according to the report, sprayed the couple "against their will."

Club security escorted the couple, and not Jordan, out of the club, the NOPD report says. Outside, the couple reported Jordan's actions to three Orleans Parish Sheriff's deputies who were working a detail at the club. The deputies refused to investigate, the NOPD report states, and told the couple to speak with NOPD or State Police.

After the couple reported the encounter with Jordan to officers at NOPD's 8th District station on Royal Street, NOPD Sgt. Samuel Dupre returned with the couple to the club and again sought assistance from the three deputies.

"Because the deputies were working at the location of the incident, had knowledge of the incident, knew which witnesses were present when the incident occurred, and knew the location of any surveillance cameras, Sergeant Dupre attempted to get the deputies to investigate the incident," the NOPD report says. "The deputies made no attempt to investigate the incident."

One of the deputies told Dupre that he needed to speak with a supervisor, the report states, while another deputy told Dupre that about 10 Saints players were in the packed club at the time.

The club was closed at the time of Dupre's arrival and, citing a lack of available evidence, Dupre did not seek out an arrest warrant, the NOPD report says.

NOPD spokesman Tyler Gamble said detectives are reviewing video surveillance regarding the ongoing investigation. Saints coach Sean Payton said the team isaware of the allegations against Jordan and is waiting for more information.

Brandon Browner, Ben Watson, Cam Jordan among Saints' captains

METAIRIE, La. – Cornerback Brandon Browner has been with the New Orleans Saints for less than six months, and tight end Benjamin Watson for less than three years. But the respect they have earned was evident when they were elected as captains this week.

Browner, Watson and defensive end Cameron Jordan were elected as first-time Saints captains, joining holdovers Drew Brees, Zach Strief and Thomas Morstead.

The Saints needed two new defensive captains this year after parting ways with both of their 2014 captains – linebackers Curtis Lofton and Junior Galette.

It’s no coincidence that Browner slid into the role because one of the reasons the Saints brought him in was to be a veteran leader for a defense that fractured both on and off the field last year. Browner, who won Super Bowl rings with theNew England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks over the past two years, hasn’t shied away from that leadership role, saying he knows that was part of the reason he was signed here.

“I think he has a huge voice on this team,” said Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro, who said Browner isn’t shy about calling people out when something needs to be said. “I think guys look up to him coming off of those back-to-back Super Bowl wins. He’s the oldest in our DB group. I don’t know, he just has that voice, that swagger, that demeanor about him that says he should be the captain.”

Jordan was a natural choice for the other defensive vacancy. He is now the longest-tenured Saints defensive player heading into his fifth season, and he is arguably the unit’s best player.

There were no surprises with Brees, Strief and Morstead, either.

Watson's selection was interesting because it meant naming a total of three offensive captains -- something the Saints had not done in the past.

Watson has quietly evolved into a role as resident mentor for younger players during his time in New Orleans. Several players have mentioned him over the years as a guy they lean on for advice or support – like a “big brother,” as receiver Brandin Cooks described it Thursday.

“Every one in this locker room, coaches included, staff members, respect a man like that,” Cooks said, joking that Watson needs a separate phone for mentoring. “The level of respect I have for him is tremendous.”

Watson, 34, said it was the first time he has been elected captain in his 12 NFL seasons, which made it extra special.

“I was very honored, think I was actually rendered speechless, just because it was a great honor to be selected by your teammates,” Watson said. “I’m happy that they see me in that light. I really was surprised by it, but I’m really thankful for the opportunity.”
