Non-Masked Tennessee State Trooper Arrested and Fired After Pulling Off Man’s Safety Mask: Report

Tennessee state trooper Harvey Briggs was fired on Aug. 14 for “unprofessional conduct,” and arrested on Sept. 3 for purportedly pulling off Andrew Goldman’s safety mask during an encounter outside the state capitol in Nashville on Aug. 10 (RAW VIDEO BELOW).

An arrest warrant says Briggs ripped the mask from the face of Golden who was taking part in a “peaceful demonstration,” and then threw the mask while touching Golden’s face, reports WRKN.

Briggs repeatedly claimed that Golden was impeding an officer who was arresting or citing a driver nearby, but Golden’s video shows Golden was legally filming from a distance on a public sidewalk.
