Bristol, TN police officer suspended from department pending investigation

Posted: Updated:
SULLIVAN COUNTY, TN (WJHL) - A Bristol, Tennessee police officer spent some time in jail over the weekend following a domestic dispute.

Sullivan County officers arrested Jonathan Eric Sargent, 39, of Blountville, after his girlfriend came to the sheriff's office around 1:00 A.M. and said Sargent had pushed her to the ground during an argument Saturday night.

An arrest report states the victim had a red mark on the palm of her hand from hitting the floor.

Deputies booked Sargent Sunday morning on a simple assault charge, but he has since bonded out.

Sargent is a Bristol, Tennessee police officer, but has been suspended pending an internal investigation.
