[TN] Red Bank Police Chief Larry Sneed files lawsuit about his firing. Sneed's attorney Brian Moss: "This firing occurred for one reason and one reason only. Chief Sneed held Commissioner Monty Millard to the same standards as everyone else. Monty Millard was arrested in December 2008 and July 2009 by the Red Bank Police Department. He was arrested a third time in August 2009 by the Hamilton County Sheriff's Department as well. All involved allegations against his wife. Mr. Millard is using these three separate arrests as a personal vendetta against Chief Sneed. In fact, only a few weeks ago, Millard subpoenaed Chief Sneed to give a deposition in his divorce case. Mr. Sneed's truthful answers were less than helpful to Mr. Millard?s civil divorce case, to say the least. This firing was in retaliation for Chief Sneed carrying out his duties as chief."
