NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Montgomery County Sheriff's criminal investigator, David Cox, was arrested and charged with reckless endangerment.

Court records show the charges resulted from a domestic incident with his wife in which Cox loaded a gun during a discussion of the couples possible split.

Cox was placed on administrative leave on Feb. 7, and arrested and charged later that night.

“We have a duty to protect the members of our community and to uphold the law regardless of who it involves. We will continue to thoroughly investigate this incident and hold Cox accountable for his actions. When we have all of the information needed, the appropriate administrative and criminal action will be taken,” said Sheriff John Fuson.

Cox's bond was set at $5,000.
