Roane County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Deputy Justin Edwards was suspended for one day following an automobile accident that occurred in Rockwood last week.
Sheriff Jack Stockton said the suspension was for a policy violation.
“He was exceeding the speed limit by a few miles per hour,” Stockton said. “I don’t think that was a contributing factor, but he was definitely speeding.”
The Tennessee Highway Patrol investigated the accident. No criminal charges were filed.
