MURFREESBORO, TN (WSMV) -

Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office Administrative Chief Joe Russell has been fired.

The Rutherford County mayor’s office confirmed Russell’s termination on Thursday afternoon.

Russell is a co-owner of the company JailCigs, which he ran in partnership with Sheriff Robert Arnold. Both are charged in a 14-count indictment.

Russell was named Wednesday in a comptroller’s report on the sheriff’s office. The investigation showed the JailCigs operation violated state and local laws and county policies.
