Officer Ray Roberts Suspended for Making Illegal Arrest

A Murfreesboro police officer is facing suspension after he allegedly performed an illegal arrest.

According to the Murfreesboro Police Department, Officer Ray Roberts illegally arrested Anthony Defeo last November. The charge was driving without a license, but it is believed Roberts did not actually see Defeo breaking any laws.

Initially, the department recommended Roberts be fired for allegedly lying during the internal investigation. However, after an appeal, that firing was changed to a 10-day suspension and one year of probation with the department.
