MEMPHIS, TENNESSSEE – A Memphis police officer has been charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and vandalism after being arrested during a scuffle on Beale Street.

Memphis police said in a statement that 30-year-old Lakendus Cole, a seven-year veteran officer currently assigned to the Organized Crime Unit, has been relieved of duty with pay pending the outcome of an investigation. Also charged with disorderly conduct was 25-year-old Darnell Tennial.

Officers said the incident arose when Cole and Tennial became uncooperative as officers attempted to clear the street at 4 a.m. CDT Sunday.

Police said the two men became combative and resisted, causing a brief struggle during which a squad car was damaged.

Both men remained in the Shelby County Jail on Sunday. Jail records did not list an attorney for either.
