COOKEVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A man the Tennessee Highway Patrol fired this year for gross misconduct has been indicted on drunken driving and weapon charges.
An indictment issued Wednesday in Cookeville charged former trooper Jonathan Reed with driving under the influence and possession of a handgun while under the influence. Both charges are misdemeanors.
Reed had been with the patrol for eight years before he was dismissed in June.
The THP had said in April that he was on approved medical leave. At the same time, the agency announced that two supervisors in the Cookeville district were disciplined for failing to properly report an incident involving Reed.
There was no telephone listing for Reed and he couldn't be reached for comment.
