NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Highway Patrol has placed a captain and a sergeant on discretionary leave with pay pending an internal investigation into possible procedural violations.
The THP, in a news release Wednesday, did not specify the possible violations. The two are Capt. David Allred of the Cookeville district and Sgt. Keven Norris, a member of the THP's critical incident response team in Putnam County. The news release said the two notified officials about the matter.
All departmental equipment including weapons, badges and commission cards were secured pending the investigation.
THP Col. Tracy Trott said there is no evidence at this time that anything criminal happened.
The two were put on leave effective March 30. Norris is a 24-year THP veteran and Allred a 15-year veteran.
