State Trooper Placed On Leave During Investigation

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A Tennessee state trooper has been placed on discretionary leave with pay, pending an investigation.

Trooper Tommie Boleyn's leave was effective Monday. The investigation by the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security's Inspectional Services Bureau stemmed from allegations that Boleyn violated Tennessee Highway Patrol policies and procedures during an on-duty incident in Shelbyville on August 31.

The exact details about the incident were not released.

The 48-year-old started his second term with the Highway Patrol in November 2009. He was initially hired in 2000, but resigned eight years later before returning in 2009.

Trooper Boleyn was assigned to the THP Lawrenceburg District during both terms. He has worked in Bedford, Marshall and Lincoln County, where he is currently stationed.

He was relieved of his service weapons, badges and commission card, pending the investigation.
