MADISON, Tenn.— An apartment complex and security guard are the subject of a state investigation after the officer was arrested Friday night.
The Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance is investigating why Sean Carter, was allowed to work at Spring Branch Apartments without a valid security guard license.
Friday evening police said Carter approached a car playing loud music at the apartment complex. When the driver refused to leave the property, Carter ordered the driver to the ground at gunpoint. Carter was arrested for possession of a weapon and aggravated assault.
Sean Carter is also a General Sessions court officer. He has also been placed on administrative leave from that position, and decommissioned pending a hearing.
