MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) -- Murfreesboro police are asking the local prosecutor's office to investigate a traffic stop involving the deputy chief's son.
The department made the request to the district attorney general to determine if an independent investigation is needed.
Kevin Garrett, the son of Deputy Chief Randy Garrett, was stopped by police on Feb. 21. Authorities have refused to release video of the stop or any information about the nature of the incident.
Randy Garrett is a 31-year veteran of the department and commands the uniformed division, criminal investigations and communications divisions.
His son has not been arrested or charged in connection with the stop.
