A now-former Hickman County Sheriff’s Deputy is charged with assaulting an arrestee last year.
According to TBI, the investigation began after the incident happened on July 6, 2018, in the parking lot of an adult book store near the Bucksnort exit on I-40.
Agents said 59-year-old Kenneth Dewayne Lynn assaulted the individual while trying to make an arrest. He resigned shortly after the incident.
Lynn was charged Wednesday with one count of aggravated assault and one count of official misconduct. He was booked into the Hickman County Jail on $25,000 bond.
