NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A Metro Police officer was decommissioned on Monday after being arrested in Smyrna early Sunday morning.

Metro Police said Officer Jonathan Frith has been decommissioned after being charged with two misdemeanors, resisting a police stop and evading arrest, after a dispute with one of his neighbors just after midnight Sunday.

Smyrna Police said Frith and another neighbor were shouting at the residence of a person who lives near them after being warned to stay off that person’s property. When Smyrna police returned a second time, officers reported that Frith refused to stop after being ordered to do so and, later, would not return to the scene.

Frith, 31, has been with the Metro Nashville Police Department for eight years. He was released from custody after posting bond.

Frith was awarded the 2015 Patrol Officer of the Year for his response to the Antioch theater attack.

The police department’s Office of Professional Accountability is conducting an internal investigation into the incident.
