TBI Agent Fired After Arrest for Public Intoxication

Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Special Agent Heidi Arlene White, a criminal investigator, was fired Tuesday after Madison County deputies arrested her on a charge of public intoxication early Sunday morning, reports the Jackson Sun.
A passerby called the Madison County Sheriff’s Office, reporting a car off the road on U.S. 45 East near Medina in Madison County, and the passerby got the impression the car’s occupants were under the influence, said Madison County Sheriff David Woolfork.
The Sheriff’s Office responded to the call about 12:30 a.m.
White fell as she got out of the car, Woolfork said.
White was taken to Madison County Jail and later released on a $200 bond.
Kristin Helm, the TBI public information officer in Nashville, said White was a probationary employee who started with the TBI in January 2011 and she was fired after an internal investigation of the incident. The probationary period for new employees is two years.
