Nashville police officer decommissioned after DUI arrest
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Officials say a Metro Nashville police officer has been decommissioned following his DUI arrest.
News outlets report police say 40-year-old Mark Hatt was assigned to desk duty after being arrested Monday in Hendersonville.
Police say a Sumner County sheriff’s deputy stopped Hatt for speeding early Monday and saw that he showed signs of impairment.
He took a blood alcohol test, the results of which are pending.
Hatt, who is a seven-year veteran of the department, is scheduled to appear in court in December.
It’s unclear if Hatt has an attorney.
