CLEVELAND, Tenn. - A Bradley County sheriff's deputy has resigned amid an internal investigation.

Former deputy Casey Kerr quit about three weeks ago after he hit a deer while driving a patrol vehicle, sheriff's office spokesman Bob Gault said Friday. Gault wasn't sure when Kerr hit the deer, but he said it was probably in early January.

The sheriff's office launched the investigation soon after Kerr's crash, and it is still under way even though he resigned.

Gault would not say what specifically his office is looking into. He also said he doesn't know whether Kerr was on duty during the crash.
