HARRIMAN, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Harriman Police Chief Randy Heidle was placed on administrative leave with pay on Thursday pending the outcome of an investigation.
Local 8 News confirmed that a packet with 19 allegations against the Harriman police chief was distributed to the city manager, district attorney, council members and the city attorney's office.
City Attorney Allison M. Rehn said this was the first time a complaint was levied against the chief.
Local 8 News obtained a copy of the packet. It began by saying the decline of morale of officers under Heidle accelerated due to "Heidle's attitude and micromanagement style."
One allegation in the packet stated Heidle had an on-duty officer drive a city-owned car to North Carolina to pick up a car Heidle had personally bought. The allegation stated Heidle may have swapped out the wheels on the car he bought for patrol car wheels. Several of the other allegations said Heidle took various car parts off of HPD cars for his own personal use.
Another allegation in the packet stated Heidle hosted several fundraisers in which he profited from personally.
It said Heidle asked officers to perform tasks like washing his car or told employees to bring him bottles of water.
The document stated Heidle yelled and belittled his employees on a regular basis.
Another allegation claimed Heidle decided to have an airsoft gun training class for the HPD Explorer program, but this actually ended up being a birthday party for his son.
The statements in the document said Heidle required all detectives to buy new hats and uniforms at HPD's expense. It said this was at a time when patrol cars and other vehicles were in need of repairs.
The document stated officers with patrol cars that needed brakes were told to drive carefully and there was not enough money in the budget to fix the brakes. (Photo Courtesy WVLT)

Photos are going viral of a horrific car fire in the parking lot of Erlanger Hospital and a Hamilton County Sheriff's Deputy is now being called a hero. In a Facebook post Monday morning, the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office posted that while Deputy William Valenzuela was working an extra security job at Erlanger early Monday morning, he saw an elderly woman pull up at the Emergency Room entrance with her car on fire. Deputy Valenzuela quickly helped the woman to safety, notified the Chattanooga Fire Department, and then attempted to put the fire out using a fire extinguisher until fire personnel could arrive on scene. He also used his patrol car to block traffic to keep others from getting injured or driving near the vehicle. Dean Bowen, a paramedic, also assisted in putting out the fire. The Sheriff’s department did not report what if any injuries the woman suffered and the cause of the blaze is under investigation.
