Officers Suspended for Moonlighting for Celebrity


Looks like moonlighting for a celebrity came back to bite these law¬†enforcement¬†officers in the long run…


6 Metro Nashville Police officers were suspended for driving Taylor Swift’s security team after being denied permission to perform the outside work.

5 Officers were suspended for 10 days, with one Sargent  suspended for 12 days.

The officers sought approval for the driving job, but their request was rejected, according to the department’s internal investigation, which was completed in May.

Elrod, who recently retired from the department, said in an interview that they continued doing the job anyway, hoping supervisors wouldn’t find out.

He said they needed the $30 an hour the work provided.
