Metro police officer Anthony Jackson lost his job with the department Thursday for allegedly pulling on a waitress’ underwear in a Hickory Hollow restaurant in 2010.
Jackson, 40, was fired following a disciplinary hearing Thursday afternoon. A waitress in the bar area of the restaurant accused Jackson of the inappropriate contact in the early morning hours of Feb. 22, 2010, while Jackson was off duty, according to Metro police.
The department’s Office of Professional Accountability and Sex Crimes Unit investigated the claims after the waitress and her employer reported the incident.
Jackson’s police authority was stripped in February 2010 during the investigation and he remained decommissioned until Thursday’s hearing.
A Davidson County grand jury indicted Jackson on two counts of sexual battery in May 2010.
