NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Three Nashville firefighters have resigned during an investigation of misconduct at a fire station.

Officials said Quincy Corbitt, Kerry Sales, and Jason Copeland resigned as charges were pending for numerous policy violations. They would have likely been terminated following the charges.

Metro Police were investigating allegations that women visited Fire Station 24 on Clarksville Highway in Bordeaux, stripped, and had sex for money with firefighters on August 21.

Police said the information came to light during an extortion attempt against Copeland.

Copeland and five firefighters at the Bordeaux station were placed on paid administrative leave during the investigation, and have been working in alternate duty capacity since September 26.

Firefighter Darrin Bell was cleared of any involvement and has returned to regular duty.

Officials said the investigation and final report is expected to be completed within the next few weeks.
