Already on paid administrative leave since September from a previous arrest, a Tennessee cop was arrested again Wednesday, this time accused of striking his mother-in-law with an open hand across the face.
Chattanooga police detective David Catchings figured he would have gotten away with it because of his badge.
“Go ahead, call the cops. They will believe me before you, because I’m a cop,” his mother-in-law accused him of saying after striking her.
She called the cops anyway, landing the 34-year-old cop back in jail. But this time, he was smiling for his mugshot.
