Authorities in Maury County are investigating after someone vandalized vehicles belonging to a Mt. Pleasant police officer and the officer's wife, who works as a dispatcher for the Maury County Sheriff's Office.

Ray and Wendy Odom told Nashville's News 2 they woke up early Monday morning to discover that someone had used a key or a screwdriver to scratch Ray's pickup truck and Wendy's SUV.  The scratches are all the way down the sides of both vehicles.

"I don't know who would want to vandalize our vehicles, it's non-sense," Wendy said, adding, "If this is going to happen, my question is what's going to happen next?"

The vandalism happened outside the couple's remote Maury County home during the overnight hours Sunday.

Maury County investigators say the act appears to be deliberate.

"In this line of profession we have to arrest people and it could possibly be someone that is upset that he may have arrested or wrote a ticket to and is upset," Randall Hickman with the Maury County Sheriff's Department said.

For the Odoms, it's been a hectic week.

Over the weekend, Wendy came home from work and spotted a pickup truck in her driveway. She got the tag numbers and that led police to a county commissioner who Officer Odom recently stopped for a traffic violation.

The commissioner, William Roddy, was arrested Saturday night and charged with stalking.

In an interview following his release Sunday, Roddy, who has served as District 10 commissioner in Maury County for three years, told Nashville's News 2 Wendy Odom's accusations are untrue.

He added that he believes that Mt. Pleasant police write tickets for revenue and not for the safety of citizens.
