Centerville Officer, Wife, Step-Son Indicted

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn.- A Centerville Police officer, his wife and step-son have been indicted by a grand jury in Hickman County.

Officials from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said that 61-year-old Centerville Police Officer Jerry Simmons was arrested and indicted on charges of official misconduct and bribery. Simmon's wife 42-year-old Pamela Simmons and his step-son 23-year-old Cory Chandler were each indicted on counts of filing a false report.

Investigators said they first began to examine Simmons in December 2111 after they learned that Simmons had allegedly manipulated a case involving his teen daughter, her child and the child's father. The case began with a domestic incident at the local McDonalds. No arrests were made at the time, but later a police report was filed which turned out to be false.

The false report claimed that the child's father had pulled a gun on Pamela Simmons, Chandler, and the daughter.

Jerry Simmons, Pamela Simmons and Cory Chandler were all being held in the local jail.
