Central Precinct Sergeant Jason Wilkerson has been decommissioned and assigned to desk duty as the result of his arrest on Sunday by the La Vergne Police Department on a charge of aggravated assault.
The charge stems from an alleged verbal argument between Wilkerson and a male friend that turned physical. Both Wilkerson and the alleged victim reside in La Vergne.
Wilkerson, 37, is a 15-year MNPD veteran who supervised the Central Precinct's Crime Suppression Unit of undercover detectives. The police department's Office of Professional Accountability is conducting an administrative investigation of the circumstances that led to Wilkerson's arrest.
