T.J. Crumpton is accused of allegedly beating Brian Peterson at Dugan's Sports Bar four years ago while working on an off-duty job. Peterson said Crumpton accosted him after he said good-bye to a group of women Crumpton was speaking to.
The behavior escalated when Crumpton followed him outside.
"I was like, ‘Really? Are you going to lock me up for saying goodbye?’ He said, ‘I can lock you up for whatever I want to,’" Peterson said. He said that's when Crumpton allegedly knocked him to the ground.
Peterson served five days in jail for charges later dropped by prosecutors. Crumpton was never fired for the incident, but resigned four days later.
A judge sent Crumpton to jail and gave him a $35,000 following his indictment.
