Tullahoma police chief and captain face internal investigation

Paul Blackwell

Police Chief Paul Blackwell and Captain George Marsh are on administrative leave with pay while the city of Tullahoma launches an internal probe into police department management. 

No details about the new investigation are available. But a news release from the city says this new investigation is not related to a TBI investigation already underway. 

That ongoing probe is focused on a complaint of misconduct against Chief Blackwell and handling of a crash involving Blackwell’s son in November.

The city has named Lt. Jason Ferrell as Acting Police Chief. He has been with the police department for 30 years.
