HAMMOND, La. -- The Hammond police chief is back at work Wednesday, after a judge threw out his administrative leave, ordered by the city's civil service board.

This latest development is according to Roddy Devall's attorney, Jill Craft.

Last month, the board began an investigation into Devall regarding the release of a fired officer's address in a press release about her drug arrest and termination.

Devall was put on paid leave for 30 days during the probe.

Devall's attorney said Tuesday's ruling was because, "The judge said he couldn't understand how they can investigate the chief for issuing the information when state criminal law required him to do so."
