Arrestee Suspected of COVID-19 Symptoms


Hamilton County, TN - Last night East Ridge Police Department personnel presented an arrestee to our facility to be booked on non-violent charges. When presented at our facility, they exhibited symptoms of COVID-19.

The magistrate issued an OR bond for their release and due to the arrestee’s symptoms, they were transported to a local hospital for medial review.

As this pertains to a medical issue, we are not releasing any further details due to HIPPA concerns about the inmate.
