NEW ORLEANS — A 33-year-old New Orleans police officer is on emergency suspension without pay after being arrested for allegedly trying to run over a man with her car.

Police said Monday that Officer Stephanie Caldwell got into a fight with a 47-year-old man about 3:30 a.m. Sunday. Investigators say as the man ran Caldwell pursued him in her personal car, driving against traffic and hitting a parked car. She later hit a wooden post, cracking it in half and disabling her vehicle.

Caldwell, who was off-duty, was booked with domestic aggravated assault, domestic simple battery, reckless operation of a vehicle, hit and run and driving against traffic.

The victim, whose name was not released, was not injured.

Caldwell is a 10-year veteran assigned to the Special Operation Division Tactical Unit.
