Knox jailer fired, two jail employees disciplined over inmate's treatment
Knox County Sheriff Jimmy "J.J." Jones on Friday terminated a jailer and disciplined two other jail employees after an internal investigation revealed the men used "techniques that violated policy" and use-of-force options taught by the department while trying to restrain an inmate in November.
In addition, a fourth jail employee resigned.
Records show that Knox County Sheriff's Office Corrections Officer Nick Breeden, 36, was fired Friday. He made $30,300 annually.
Corrections Officer Jesse Rudd, 27, resigned. He had been with KCSO since January 2012.
