NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Highway Patrol is demoting a captain and recommending a five-day suspension for a sergeant after the agency says the two falied to properly report an incident involving a state trooper last month.
The state Department of Safety and Homeland Security said Thursday that Col. Tracy Trott moved to demote David Allred from captain to lieutenant of the Cookeville District and recommended suspension for Sgt. Keven Norris for violating department policy.
The department said in a news release that internal investigators found that Allred and Norris failed to properly report an incident involving Trooper Jonathan Reed on March 27. The district attorney found no evidence of criminal activity by Allred or Norris.
Details of the incident were not disclosed, but the release said Reed is on approved medical leave.
