Trooper Jonathan Reed has been fired following allegations of "gross misconduct."
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -
The Tennessee Highway Patrol has terminated a state trooper assigned to the Cookeville district following an internal investigation into allegations of "gross misconduct."
Trooper Jonathan Reed has been served notice of his termination and will not seek a minimum due process hearing, according to a THP release.
THP Colonel Tracy Trott said he would release no further information.
In April, the THP demoted David Allred from captain to lieutenant of the Cookeville district and recommended a five-day suspension for Sgt. Keven Norris as discipline for violation of the department's policies.
That disciplinary action was the result of an internal investigation that discovered Allred and Norris failed to properly report an incident involving Trooper Reed on March 27.
The case file regarding the investigation into Allred and Norris was also presented to the district attorney, who found no evidence of criminal activity.
