PIGEON FORGE — Pigeon Forge Police Chief Jack Baldwin said today that he fired three officers who were caught on an in-cruiser video discussing the killing of other officers.

Dismissed on Monday were Trinity R. Brown, Jefferson Thigpen and Michael L. Musgrove, according to a news release Baldwin read in a news conference at Pigeon Forge City Hall.

Baldwin said they were fired for conduct incompatible with continued employment.

Baldwin said a June 7 video of the officers discussing the killing of other officers was uncovered, which led Baldwin to suspend them on June 19.
