BRUSLY, La. (AP) - The former Brusly (BREW’-lee) police chief, already sentenced to 18 months’ supervised probation, has been arrested again accused for the second time of malfeasance and theft.

Jamie Whaley now faces two counts of forgery stemming from a probe conducted by the state Inspector General’s Office and the FBI.

The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1knzzLm ) the 37-year-old Whaley was arrested around 10 a.m. Wednesday and released from the West Baton Rouge Parish Jail on a $10,000 bond.

Whaley was indicted April 10 on theft and malfeasance for using a town-issued credit card to purchase gasoline for his personal truck and boat. A state judge sentenced him to 18 months’ supervised probation and imposed a $500 fine in a plea deal.

The new investigation alleges Whaley misappropriated seven firearms owned by the town.
