New Orleans police are still looking for Wilton Joiner, the taxicab inspector wanted for battery in an incident with a French Quarter tour guide last week, the department said.
A police spokesman said Joiner has not yet turned himself in. There is a simple battery arrest warrant pending for Joiner.
The tour guide said Joiner slammed her against a car and twisted her arm when she grabbed back a city-issued permit that he had taken from her. Joiner had stopped her in the middle of a tour.
The taxicab bureau oversees New Orleans tour guide businesses.
Joiner was suspended without pay following the incident.
