Decommissioned Metro Nashville Police Officer Jonathan Frith on Monday resigned from the MNPD to be effective after he serves a 30-day unpaid suspension.
Frith, who has been with the police department for 8 years, was charged with two misdemeanors Monday by Smyrna police stemming from a dispute with his neighbor. He had been decommissioned since July as the result of an administrative improper force investigation
Smyrna police charged decommissioned Metro Nashville Police Officer Jonathan Frith with two misdemeanors, resisting a police stop and evading arrest, stemming from a dispute with one of his neighbors just after midnight Sunday (10/8/17).
Smyrna police report that Frith and another neighbor were derogatorily shouting at the residence of a person who lives near them after being warned to stay off that person's property. When Smyrna police returned a second time, they report that Frith refused to stop after being ordered to do so and, later, would not return to the immediate scene.
Frith, 31, who has been with the MNPD for 8 years, was released from Smyrna police custody after posting bond. The MNPD's Office of Professional Accountability is conducting an administrative investigation of his actions.
