FAIRVIEW, Tenn. (WKRN) – There’s more bad news for the Fairview Police Department after a recently-fired officer was arrested for aggravated domestic assault.

Derrick Byrum was with the department for eight years, rising to the rank of a corporal.

After allegations of a sexual assault surfaced, he was fired by Fairview police.

And on Thursday, he was indicted by the Dickson County Grand Jury on aggravated domestic assault.

Byrum bonded out of jail on $5,000 and is due back in court early next year.
