NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – A Metro Nashville police officer charged with domestic violence has been disciplined 31 times in his 24-year career.

The Tennessean reports Andre Johnson was decommissioned early this month after he was charged with misdemeanor domestic violence. Last week he was booked on another domestic violence charge.

He remains employed while criminal and internal investigations continue.

Johnson faced a similar charge in 2006 but was found not guilty.

In May 2011, Johnson was suspended for ignoring police while they were investigating a domestic violence allegation.

He has also faced discipline in for infractions like failing to follow protocol, negligence while driving and failure to appear in court and at work.

Despite the numerous disciplinary actions, Johnson has never faced termination.
