Hawkins County Jailer Fired
On the heels of a former Hawkins County Jailer being arrested last week, another has been fired for violating Hawkins County Sheriff’s Office regulations. Officer Scott Winkle was let go after a disturbance in the jail. Officials say Winkle was walking an inmate back to his cell and had “inappropriate physical contact” with that inmate. Jail authorities said Winkle and all jail officers received instruction on appropriate contact after former jail officer Roy Junior Mathes was accused of misdemeanor assault back in February. Mathes was officially charged last week. Officials say the inmate in this latest incident was not injured and a criminal investigation will not be opened.
