Lafayette Police Chief Ray Amalfitano resigns amid investigation

LAFAYETTE, Tenn. -Nashville’s News 2 Investigates has learned that the Lafayette Police Chief Ray Amalfitano has resigned effective Friday.

Mayor Richard Driver told Nashville’s News 2 Investigates Amalfitano “resigned on his own,” adding, “It was best for him and the police department.”

Driver says he has yet to choose Amalfitano’s replacement.

Amalfitano has been with the department for about 12 years but has only served as chief for approximately a year.

The resignation comes in the wake of a TBI and district attorney’s office investigation into an alleged beating involving a handcuffed prisoner.
