Dickson Police Officers Justin Walton And Rob Peeler Arrested Without Being Told Why
Dickson, TN – Two Dickson police officers say that they were arrested after being caught up in their department’s unethical behavior and small-town politics. Dickson Police Officer Justin Walton and Dickson Police Officer Rob Peeler were assigned to public works picking up garbage, ordered to lie, and then arrested without being told why.
According to both Officer Walton and Officer Peeler, they responded to a call after a fight and assault at a local Mexican restaurant, Las Plazas. Officer Walton arrived first, then Officer Peeler. Officer Katrina Pulley, who is married to a Dickson Police Sergeant, also arrived on scene.
The people involved, Richard and Tasha Curtis, and Rex Buttery and his wife, have changed their stories several times. The only version that hasn’t changed is from the waitress who witnessed the incident. What they can agree on is that they had been eating a meal together and all four had been drinking.
