A decommissioned Metro police officer facing a domestic assault charge from his arrest earlier this month admitted to conduct unbecoming of an office and submitted his resignation, according to police.
Albert Ridgeway, 36, allegedly pushed his girlfriend down several times during an argument at the Mt. Juliet home where the couple lived. Mt. Juliet police arrested him on Aug. 12.
Ridgeway’s resignation from the Metro Nashville Police Department is set to go into effect after he serves a 30-day unpaid suspension based on an agreement with the department stating he would submit an irrevocable letter of resignation.
Ridgeway worked for the MNPD for six years and was last assigned to the Central Precinct.
