Deputy resigns amid questions about past criminal charge
A Madison County sheriff’s deputy has resigned amid questions about a past criminal charge, but could possibly be rehired following a court ruling issued Tuesday.
Deputy Shane Paar submitted his letter of resignation on Friday after a background check found a document in Paar’s record that said he had a charge that could keep him from being an officer.
The Tennessee Law Enforcement Academy’s Peace Officer Standards and Training Commission agenda form, dated Feb. 15, 2008, references a simple domestic assault charge that the document said Shane Paar received in 1999.
In his resignation letter to Sheriff David Woolfork, Paar stated that he thought the charge in question had been expunged. Paar could not be reached for comment Tuesday.
