An off-duty Decherd Police officer was charged with aggravated assault after he allegedly pointed his department-issued handgun at a driver Sunday in Murfreesboro, a Rutherford County supervisor said.

The investigation showed Ward observed a driver from Franklin allegedly speeding on I-24 Sunday evening.

The officer displayed his Decherd Police badge and signaled for the person to slow down, Travis reported. They exchanged words. Ward pursued person to Medical Center Parkway where both men exited their vehicles.
