Assault, Official Oppression and Official Misconduct
Hickman County Deputy Scott Hull was arrested on Wednesday after an “eight-month-long investigation” led by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. The TBI investigated two different complaints by individuals of excessive force by Deputy Hull. The investigation resulted in Hull being “charged with four counts of assault, two counts of official oppression, and two counts of official misconduct.”
Before working with the Hickman County Sheriff’s Department, Scott Hull worked for the Dickson City Police Department. While there, he was investigated for allowing inmates access to dangerous contraband such as guns and alcohol. “Hull was placed on administrative leave after investigators say he left a knife, a bottle of whiskey and syringes in his personal locker.” Apparently inmates had access to the lockers as they passed by them. The Dickson City Police Department does have an evidence room and they do not allow evidence to be placed in personal lockers.
Deputy Scott Hull was fired by the Hickman County Sheriff’s Department for his latest crimes.
