CLEVELAND, Tenn. — Was Bradley County Deputy Dallas Longwith mowing his lawn in his underwear?
The former court officer says no. But the Bradley County Sheriff's Office dismissed Longwith late last year for "conduct unbecoming an officer," Major Jim Hodgson said Thursday. The dismissal came after a second complaint was received about him mowing the yard in his underwear and after Longwith had been warned the first time, Hodgson said.
