State trooper under investigation quits job

Posted: Updated:
COOKEVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A Tennessee state trooper is off the job and under investigation.

Trooper Wade Williams resigned recently after finding he was the focus of a criminal investigation.

He served in the Highway Patrol's 6th District based in Cookeville but left his job after finding he was the focus of a criminal investigation.

The Department of Safety would not outline the allegations but said if Williams had not quit his position, he was going to be fired for "gross misconduct."
