Tennessee Highway Patrol says trooper resigns after having sex on duty

NASHVILLE — A sergeant has resigned rather than be fired after an investigation revealed misconduct that included having sex while on duty.

The THP announced Wednesday that 45-year-old James Sells resigned following an internal affairs investigation that also found he misused state property and equipment and was negligent in performing his duties.

Sells worked in the criminal investigations division in Cookeville.

It’s one of several recent misconduct incidents involving the THP.
