Memphis firefighter suspended with pay

(WMC-TV) - A Memphis Fire Lieutenant is off the job with pay pending the outcome of an administrative investigation.

Earlier this month, Lt. Reggie Davis claimed to have been attacked by a fellow firefighter and released an audio recording of what he claimed was the scuffle caught on tape.

The Memphis Fire Department responded by saying Davis' account was fabricated.

The department said Davis is on paid leave while the administration investigates various departmental infractions.
