The Louisiana Ethics Board has filed charges against three former employees of the Lake Charles Police Department.

The board charged former Deputy Chief T.J. Bell with receiving McNeese course credit for work done by another employee and having that employee on the payroll when she was not doing what she was being paid for.

That employee was clerk Jeanine Blaney, also charged by the board with receiving regular and overtime pay for hours for which she provided no services; and for helping bell with McNeese coursework while he was working.

And finally, Arnold Bellow, retired captain of detectives, is charged with signing and approving Blaney's inaccurate work log, thereby approving pay for hours she didn't work.

In each case, the board asked that a hearing be held to determine if there were ethics violations and, if so, assess appropriate penalties.

KPLC reached out to attorneys for Bell and Blaney and have not yet heard back.

    Another cold front on its way!Another cold front on its way!

    For the rest of today, we will see mostly sunny skies with no chance for any rain. You will need a jacket as you head out the door because temperatures will still not warm up very much. Highs this afternoon are only going to be in the mid 60s. After sunset, we will quickly fall into the 50s, eventually back into the 40s again. By tonight, we will have clear skies with rain chances down to zero. Temperatures will cool down to the low to mid 40s tonight.
