After the video was released, Metro decommissioned Teague and began an internal investigation. Shortly after, Teague resigned which resulted in the end of the investigation.

According to Metro, the woman in the video has signed a warrant for Teague’s arrest which has a misdemeanor assault listed on it.

Teague does not currently live in the state of Tennessee, but his lawyers have been notified about the warrant, and arrangements apparently are being made.
