Lincoln Co. Deputy Accused Of Assaulting Wife

CREATED May 21, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A Deputy for the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office has been accused of domestic assault.

Officials with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said Timothy Alan Moorehead was arrested after an alleged altercation with his wife.

Investigators said the alleged assault occurred inside their Petersburg home on May 16.

The TBI arrested the 34-year-old suspect on Tuesday, not long after the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office learned of the alleged incident. Moorehead was terminated by the department as a result of his arrest.

He was taken into custody without incident and charged with one count of Domestic Assault.

Moorehead was later released on $1,500 bond.
