A rookie Metro Nashville police officer has been decommissioned after he drunkenly broke into a neighbor's house on Sunday. Robert Shouse, 39, was charged with aggravated trespassing and public intoxication outside a townhouse development in South Nashville.
Shouse had just completed six months of rigorous training less than two weeks ago. Police have already collected his gun and badge.
After knocking on a neighbor's back door, Shouse struggled to get inside the home. He broke the handle off the door and his neighbor ran outside the house and called police. Police arrested him outside the neighborhood near Nolensville Road.
The police department's Office of Professional Accountability launched an administrative review of Shouse yesterday afternoon.
Shouse's bail was set at $2,000.
