Police officer suspended without pay following incident with inmate

A police officer will be suspended 90 days without pay, because of an incident involving an inmate.

Last week, 27 NEWSFIRST obtained video showing Paris Police Officer Robert Puckett throwing an inmate to the ground, and shoving him at the Bourbon County Detention Center.

Tuesday morning, a disciplinary committee told the Paris City Council that Officer Puckett would be suspended.

Paris Police and Puckett both signed off on the agreed disciplinary action.

The internal investigation into the incident was completed last week.
