MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) - Cocaine. Threatening people. Cursing at fellow officers. Solicitation of a minor. Those are just a few things Sergeant Jason Webb is accused of doing during his time of employment with the Memphis Police Department.

Sergeant Webb has an extensive employment file with the Memphis Police Department. He was even fired once, but able to get his job back.

Most recently, Webb was indicted on patronizing prostitution and solicitation of a minor.

"I think at least one of those prostitutes were underage," said MPD Director Toney Armstrong.

  • December 2006: Sgt. Webb helped remove a manatee carcass from McKellar Lake.
  • April 2006: He tested positive for cocaine.
  • April 2007: He helped solve a burglary at the catholic diocese.
  • February 2000: He got into a fight over a woman. Staff at Platinum Plus had to use a chemical spray on him.
  • January 2012: He was accused of driving under the influence, pointing a gun at and threatening two men in a wrecker, then cursing out the responding officers.

He was fired after the 2012 incident. The deputy chief wrote, "Your actions were an embarrassment to yourself, the Memphis Police Department, and the law enforcement profession."

Sgt. Webb was eventually given his job back, with back pay.

"We make a determination. We end their career. But it certainly it is within their right to seek civil service and they made the determination to overturn the termination," said MPD Director Toney Armstrong.

Director Armstrong said he does not necessarily agree with the civil service's opinion.

Webb posted bond after being arrested on the patronizing prostitution charge. While he is still employed with MPD, he is not currently on the job.
