Tenn. cop files suit against city, PD
Red Bank, a town of under 12,000 people and coffers holding just $5.1 million, now faces three major lawsuits asking for a combined $13 million in damages

Red Bank faces its third high-profile lawsuit in less than six months with one of its own police officers bringing charges that may shed light on the controversy surrounding the city's law enforcement division.
Three days after he chose to take a 60-day leave for exhaustion, Officer Bradley Hanon named Mayor Joe Glasscock, City Manager Chris Dorsey, former police chief Larry Sneed, interim Chief Dan Knight and the city of Red Bank in a $1.5 million lawsuit, claiming that officials ignored his complaints against alleged improper police work by other officers. All four men subjected Hanon to "defamation, humiliation and mental anguish," the lawsuit says.
