MPD officer relieved of duty, accused of sexual assault
This story was generated by a tip to our assignment editor. He said something would be coming down regarding a Memphis police officer and a sex investigation. We still had not heard late in the afternoon. But then he and I got texts from inside MPD. I had just gotten done with the 4:00 newscast. My photographer and I drove downtown to do a live shot for 6:00. Basically, a woman claimed an officer assaulted her after she left a nightclub. I convinced the GM of the club to do a quick interview. Otherwise, there's wasn't much to go on except for limited details from the police department. I turned this longer piece for 10:00.
