Burns Police Chief Tase Sturgill’s resignation came the day after he was named in a police report for allegedly sending explicit text messages and pictures to a woman who said she was assaulted by her boyfriend. A report by Dickson County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Jennifer Harrell said deputies responding to a reported domestic assault early Sunday morning on Cedar Hill Road were shown two sexually explicit photographs and multiple text messages allegedly sent by Sturgill, who resigned from the Burns Police Department Monday. The report says the woman claimed she was grabbed and pushed down on a couch by her boyfriend, who had become angry after finding the messages on her phone. She claimed she is not involved in a relationship with Sturgill but has been communicating with him by text and email since May. Justin K. Anderson, age 23, of Burns, was charged with domestic assault as well as possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia after two bongs and a baggie of marijuana were found in the home. According to the report, Anderson admitted the drugs were his and said he kicked some items around the house but denied touching his girlfriend. The report says red marks were visible on the alleged victim’s arm. Anderson was being held on $3,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court Dec. 14. Sturgill resigned from the Burns Police Department Monday after having served as chief since July 2011. He is not charged with any criminal action. Mayor-elect Landon Mathis has said he plans to nominate former Dickson Police Department Officer Paul McCallister as the town’s next chief when the new administration begins Monday night. Sgt. Vance Bowker is serving as interim chief.
