NATCHITOCHES, LA (KSLA) - A Natchitoches man faces charges after allegedly making false statements about a police officer and another person.

Authorities say Darien Moore turned himself into Natchitoches Police over the weekend.

Moore's arrest reportedly stems from an incident back in September of 2017. At the time, police say he made false statements on social media about the officer and the other person.

Natchitoches Police say they were able to prove the social media posts were false.

Moore was arrested on two counts of defamation.

He was taken to Natchitoches Parish Detention Center and his next court date is in June.
