 Kingsport police officer on leave pending results of internal investigation

KINGSPORT — A Kingsport police officer is on administrative leave pending the outcome of an internal investigation at the department.

On Wednesday, Kingsport Police Department Lt. Bob Abernathy confirmed Officer Bryan Carter was placed on leave with pay last week. Abernathy declined to elaborate on the nature of the investigation, citing its ongoing status, while attempts by the Times-News to reach Carter were unsuccessful.

During his 14-year career with the KPD, Carter has been disciplined on three previous occasions.
