Police investigating 2 officer-involved incidents

Chattanooga police are investigating two cases involving police officers, including an allegation of officer misconduct.

Officer Jeremy Williams reportedly showed up for a training exercise on April 19 after consuming alcohol, according to police spokeswoman Sgt. Jerri Weary. He has been relieved of duty but is working in a non-official capacity pending the outcome of the investigation, she said.

Since it is an ongoing investigation, few details can be released, she said.

Williams was arrested last year on April 18 after he reportedly was involved in an accident and was intoxicated at the time, Weary said. The case was dismissed in court but he was found guilty of conduct unbecoming a police officer in the internal investigation and was given a letter of reprimand, she said.

In another case, Officer Brian Angel was involved in an assault case that took place Sunday, Weary said.

Jennifer Wright was arrested Sunday following a domestic incident between her and Angel, the sergeant said, and Wright is charged with domestic assault, vandalism and theft over $1,000.

She is accused of assaulting Angel, vandalizing his apartment, attempting to steal his phone and stealing money from him, Weary said.

Witnesses told police an argument broke out after Wright found Angel in his apartment with a woman.

Wasn't Officer Brian Angel involved in an incident last year with four other officers and a 6mil lawsuit has been filed by a Ms Flemings who suffered a torn rotary cuff and other injuries when she was allegedly attack by five officers? One of those officers was a Brian Angel.

I guess my question is if williams was at a training exercise, does that mean he had his gun on him? And if so is that not in violation of the law to be in possession of a weapon when under the influence or does it not count if you are a police officer?
