4 law officers suspended in Union City

(AP) - Four more law officers have been suspended in Union City, Tenn., in the aftermath of the arrest of a police officer.

According to radio station KYTN/WQAK, Union City Police Chief Joe Garner and Obion County Sheriff Jerry Vastbinder said four officers from their departments are part of separate internal investigations.

Garner said three Union City officers were suspended shortly after officer Mike Hogg was arrested by the TBI on theft and fraud charges.

Vastbinder has suspended one deputy with possible knowledge of the case.

Hogg was arrested last Wednesday after an investigation into an alleged theft of an all-terrain vehicle from his home in August. Investigators said he gave the ATV to another individual before the theft report was filed and that he also collected insurance money.

Hogg faces termination.
