"Stressed" Red Bank officer on leave
CHATTANOOGA (Times Free Press) - A "stressed out" police officer who confronted Red Bank's mayor and criticized the city's former police chief began a 60-day leave of absence last week.

Acting as a dysfunctional police department's "voice" became too much, said Hanon, the same officer who filed a complaint against Red Bank Mayor Joe Glasscock for a July 6 argument in the parking lot of City Hall. The altercation stemmed from ex-Red Bank police chief Larry Sneed's sudden firing.
