Dog Fight in Quarter


A bizarre fight about a dog took place in the French Quarter’s Three Legged Dog (400 Burgundy Street) on Saturday (7.18) night. The incident concluded when the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) arrived to arrest Richard Abbott for Aggravated Battery and Possession of a Firearm on the premises of an Alcoholic Beverage Outlet.


Busted Down on Bourbon Street


Fourth of July weekend passed without any violent crime in the Quarter. Howeve, the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) did arrest one 18-year-old on Bourbon for carrying a gun and some weed.


Civil War: Brothers Brawl on America (Street)


America was in crisis on Thursday (6.18). America Street that is. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) are searching for a 19-year-old man after he allegedly assaulted his brother.


Shot From the Heart


For some, the morning-after involves a walk of shame; for others, it involves a gunshot wound. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) say that the primary suspect in a Monday (5.19) morning shooting is a woman who felt unwanted.


Suspect Sought in Freret Carjacking


The New Freret Street might be an ode to gentrification, but the old Freret Street still has some issues. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) are busy looking for a man accused of an afternoon armed robbery and carjacking in the University area of Freret.


Quarter Gats: NOPD Makes Illegal Carry Bust


Some residents have described the City as the "wild west" recently. The French Quarter Task Force do not agree and they certainly do not condone citizens packing heat without a permit. Two men were arrested at the corner of Quarter and booked with Illegal Carrying of a Firearm on Tuesday (5.05) night.


Gumshoes ID Person of Interest in Bourbon Shooting


The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) have ID’d a person of interest in a Saturday (3.21) shooting on Bourbon Street just a block from the Eighth District’s HQ.


Double Shooting in Quarter


On Saturday (3.21) a double shooting in the Quarter left one man dead and another hospitalized. The site of the gunfight was only feet away from the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD)’s Eighth District station.


Mardi Gras Mambo: Car Chase in the Treme


The Quarter and parade routes are flooded with every sort of law enforcement imaginable, but that does not mean that the rest of the city is unwatched. Two cops on their beat made a drug bust by the Man Chu intersection where Esplanade Avenue meets North Claiborne on Sunday (2.15) evening.


Knife Fight Ends With Gunfire at UNO


By Ashley Larsen

One former UNO student learned an old lesson this week. Don't bring a knife to a gunfight. A University of New Orleans (UNO) campus police officer fired his sidearm at a former student after being attacked with a knife on Thursday (1.08).
