Court records outline Capt. Randy Chandler's charges, allege second prostitution attempt

SHREVEPORT, La. -

Court documents lay out the accusations against Shreveport Fire Capt. Randy Chandler, 51, and allege a second prostitution proposition at Station 8.

According to court papers, during an interview at the Shreveport FBI Field Office, Chandler admitted to feeding dog food to a mentally disabled man.

Investigators say Chandler bought Alpo dog food at a local grocery store, cooked it on the stove, and fed it to a mentally disabled man under the pretense that the meal was "beef tips and rice," not dog food.

In a post-Miranda statement to investigators, Chandler reportedly said there were two separate occasions when he took a hat from the victim and threw it to the ground where it landed in an ant pile.

Because the victim is said to have the mind of an eight- or nine-year-old, it is reported that his mental capacity prohibited him from removing the cap before he was bitten by the ants. Records say the victim received medical treatment from another firefighter.

In the document, Chandler admits that he locked the victim in a Station 8 closet for a short amount of time.

Investigators also cite three other firefighters when they allege that Chandler put coins in fire and had the victim retrieve them.

A 30 year SFD veteran, Chandler was working at Station 16 near Shreveport Regional Airport when charges were filed.

The court documents say at least some of the allegations against Chandler took place in May and August 2012.

Chandler's arraignment is set for Monday, September 30 before Judge Ramona Emanuel. He is still on paid administrative leave.

The court documents also include information from the woman allegedly paid to have sex with a mentally disabled man on June 14. She told police Capt. Derrick Harris approached her to have sex with another disabled man after the original act, but she refused because she thought the second man was more mentally impaired than the first.

Billy Glass, Clint Richardson, and Jason Vaughan are due in court Wednesday morning for arraignment on one count each of principal to prostitution and cruelty to the infirm.

All three men- as well as Harris- were terminated from the Shreveport Fire Department Friday.
