Mike Fitzhugh is officially the new Rutherford County Sheriff. After being voted in by the Rutherford County Commission last Thursday and sworn in after the meeting, he received his bond at 12:01am Monday morning.
Being accused of bribery is a serious charge… One Murfreesboro man was charged with bribery after allegedly telling an officer who arrested him for public intoxication that he could have his 18-pack of beer if he turned his head to the charges.
Alexander Underwood reportedly told police that he had 19-mixed drinks over the past 24-hours. Police say they spotted Underwood crossing South Rutherford Boulevard. Officers responded to the area after receiving a call that Underwood was allegedly causing a disturbance at Applebee’s.
As far as the 18-pack of beer that Underwood allegedly told the officer he could have, he evidently told police that it was hidden in the bushes in front of Walmart.
The 26-year old man was charged with public intoxication and bribery.
