Deputy Bryan Collins, a four-year employee of the Sheriff’s Office, has not been allowed to report for duty for a week, and has, through a lawyer, reported his concerns about retaliation to the U.S. Department of Justice.

Sheriff Marlin Gusman’s office confirmed late Thursday that the office is pursuing criminal and administrative probes into Collins. In a brief written statement, a Gusman spokesperson said Collins violated department policies when he brought a cell phone into the jail and took the photo of a bloody jail cell that later appeared on NOLA.com.
