Thursday afternoon, former Metro Narcotics officer Chad Lewis's case was front and center in Jackson City Court. He was not in the courtroom, but his attorney, Joe Byrd Jr., was.

Byrd asked Judge Blake Anderson to allow the one-time Madison County deputy to see his 4-year-old son. The judge agreed to supervised visitation. However, Judge Anderson denied Byrd's request for copies of the 911 calls made during the incident that landed Lewis in trouble.

Last week, during his initial hearing, the state asked that the Lewis, 29, not be able to see his son based on allegations made by his ex-wife. She told investigators he threatened to kill her children, including their young son, if she did not tell medics she stabbed herself.

The 25-year-old woman suffered a stab wound to her chest. She told officers Lewis stabbed her as they drove down the road in Jackson. He did take her for medical help, 40 minutes away in Henderson. Medics said she was in handcuffs when she arrived at their ambulance station.

Lewis is currently free on $150,000 bond. His next court date is set for August.
