A local DEA agent was arrested this week by the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office after he battered his wife.

On Sunday (September 25) a female contacted the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office to report her husband, Jimmie Ogden (DOB 1/5/1968) had battered her while they were at their Covington-area home on September 22.  The female reported that after the incident she fled to north Louisiana.

Upon her return Wednesday (September 28), the female met with investigators with the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office, where she provided a statement and documentation of injuries was taken. 

Based on the investigation conducted and the evidence provided, a warrant was issued by the 22nd Judicial Court Wednesday (September 28) night for Ogden’s arrest.

He was located and taken into custody without incident and was booked into the St. Tammany Parish Correctional Center on one count of L.R.S. 14:35.3 Domestic Abuse Battery.

The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office has been in communication with the local DEA field office, and they are aware of the arrest.
