Trooper Henry Ford charged with Interfering

An off-duty state trooper assigned to Shreveport was arrested at the scene of an accident involving his son Saturday night in Lincoln Parish.

Henry Ford is charged with interfering with medical personnel and resisting an officer.

Henry Ford arrived at the scene of an accident involving his son, Qshawn Ford, 20, of Arcadia, just before 11 p.m. Saturday on state highway 507 in Lincoln Parish.

Ruston Ambulance Service crew members told Lincoln Parish deputies working the scene that they asked Henry Ford to leave Qshawn Ford alone because of the possibility of spinal injuries. According to the crew members' statements, Henry Ford refused to leave the area after being asked to leave several times.

Henry Ford allegedly got into a fight with deputies as they attempted to remove him from the area. Deputies subdued Ford with a Taser before arresting him.

Ford was booked into the Lincoln Parish Detention Center and later released on his own recognizance. He is assigned to the Transportation and Emergency Services Section of the state police in the Shreveport area.

The Louisiana State Police will conduct an administrative investigation into the incident. The Lincoln Parish Sheriff's Office is handling the primary investigation.

Retired FBI Agent Edward Preciado-Nuno Arrested for Murder

A retired agent with the FBI in San Diego has been arrested in Las Vegas after a woman was found bludgeoned to death with a hammer.

Clark County jail records showed Edward A. Preciado-Nuno was arrested Thursday on suspicion of murder with a deadly weapon.

An FBI spokesman said Preciado-Nuno retired from the bureau in 2003. He was last assigned to the bureau's San Diego office.

The Clark County coroner's office has not released the woman's identity or the official cause of death. She was found Thursday morning after police were summoned to a Las Vegas home on a domestic violence call.

Police say the woman was discovered in the garage with several blunt-force trauma wounds to the head. Preciado-Nuno also was found in the home.
