Shreveport Fire Chief Craig Mulford has surrendered to Caddo authorities on charges of malfeasance in office.

A grand jury issued the secret indictment, which the Caddo Sheriff's Office received as a secret warrant for his arrest. The indictment became public once Mulford turned himself in at Caddo Correctional Center.

He is charged with five counts of malfeasance in office, and each charge carries a $5,000 bond.

According to The Advertiser two people — including Mulford — were indicted by a grand jury today following an investigation into the Shreveport Fire Department administration's handling of alleged misconduct by five firefighters.

Last summer, five SPD firefighters — Derrick Harris, Jason Vaughan, Clint Richardson, Billy Glass, and Randy Chandler were arrested for mistreating and playing cruel pranks on a mentally-disabled man who often visited Fire Station No. 8.
