Couple sues Campbell County Sheriff’s Office in September crash

A LaFollette, Tenn., couple is suing the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office, among others, after one of its former detectives, who they claim had been drinking, crashed his truck into their home last fall.

Robert Hatfield and his wife, Janice Hatfield, filed a negligence and assault lawsuit Wednesday in Campbell County Circuit Court in connection to the Sept. 5, 2011, incident at their 254 Imperial Heights Lane home.

Sheriff Robbie Goins fired former Chief Deputy Jonathan Finley and former Detective Jason Henegar after authorities say Henegar crashed his truck into the home at about midnight Sept. 5. Authorities have said they believe alcohol was a factor in the wreck.

Henegar was fired Sept. 6. Goins fired Finley a day later. The sheriff has said Finley violated office policy, but has not discussed the exact violations or how they relate to the crash.
