Haywood County Deputy Fired For Second Time After Domestic Assault Charge

HAYWOOD COUNTY, Tenn. — A former Haywood County deputy is no longer on the job after authorities confirm they arrested him and charged him with domestic assault.

This isn’t the first time former sheriff’s deputy Adrian Perkins has been in this type of situation. According to Brownsville’s mayor, just last year he was fired from the Brownsville Police Department for the exact same charge.

“He is supposed to protect the citizens of Haywood County and he can’t even protect the people in his household,” a family member of the victim said.

According to Brownsville police, Perkins was picked up on a domestic assault charge that took place at New Revelation Missionary Baptist Church in Brownsville.

Officers arrested Perkins late Friday night after reviewing video from a surveillance camera right outside the church.

According to Brownsville police, this is the second documented offense against the former deputy.

“Officer Perkins was a former Brownsville police department officer,” Mayor Bill Rawls said. “He was terminated Sept. 27, 2016, for a domestic violence charge.”

Mayor Rawls said shortly after Perkins was fired last year, he filed a grievance lawsuit against the city. Because of that pending case, city officials say they can’t comment on what it entails but say they have zero tolerance for violence.

“It’s just not acceptable in our community,” Mayor Rawls said. “We’re all human beings, we all deserve to be treated with respect, whether we’re in our home or in the streets or in the police department or in the police car or wherever you are.”

According to court documents, Perkins pleaded guilty Monday morning to the charge of domestic assault. He served two days in jail and must also complete one year of supervised probation.
