Springfield Officer Fired Following Allegations Of Domestic Violence
SPRINGFIELD TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – A Springfield Police officer that was initially placed on paid administrative leave following domestic violence allegations in Clarksville Tennessee has been terminated following an internal investigation, according to Springfield City Manager Ryan Martin.
“Springfield City officials have confirmed that Officer Jarreil Peoples has been terminated after an internal investigation concluded that policies were violated.” Peoples joined the Springfield Police Department in August of last year.
Back on May 7, Clarksville police were called to a home in a subdivision off Tylertown Rd near the Tennessee/Kentucky border regarding a domestic in progress just before 9 pm.
According to the arrest warrant obtained by Smokey Barn News, when officers arrived on the scene they made contact with a female inside of her vehicle near her home. She told police that she and her ex-boyfriend (Peoples) whom she shares a child, had been in a physical altercation regarding an exchange of property.
During the exchange of property, the victim told police that Peoples “kicked in her driver’s side window striking her in the face with his foot and shards of glass.” The arrest warrant then states; “The victim was bleeding from the face as a result of the kick to the face and had lacerations from the glass.”
Clarksville Police are leading the investigation into the allegations against Peoples, who is currently out on a $5000 bond.
Before joining the Springfield Police Department, Peoples started his career as a police officer with the Clarksville Police Department.
