The Orleans Parish Sheriff's Office has opened an internal investigation into allegations that several deputies at a New Orleans nightclub took NO ACTION when they were told a Saints star had allegedly slapped a woman's ass inside.
The whole situation involved Saints defensive lineman Cam Jordan -- who was accused of slapping a woman's butt and roughing up her boyfriend at Republic nightclub this weekend.
The alleged victims claimed they immediately reported the incident to 3 deputies who were working at the club -- "but the deputies neither investigated the incident nor did they take action."
Now, Sheriff Marlin Gusan has issued a statement saying, "We will be reviewing the actions of the deputies to determine if any policies or procedures were violated."
He adeed, "We will follow all leads in this investigation."
For his part, Jordan has denied any wrongdoing -- and called the allegations "ridiculous."
