White officer involved in fatal arrest

A white officer involved in the fatal arrest of Tyre Nichols last month has been fired from the Memphis Police Department for several conduct violations during the incident.

The department said in a statement on Friday that Preston Hemphill was terminated from his role for violations of personal conduct, truthfulness, compliance with regulations concerning a taser, compliance with regulations concerning equipment and inventory and processing recovered property.

After a thorough review of the circumstances surrounding this incident, we determined that Officer Preston violated multiple department policies,” the department said.

Hemphill is the sixth of Memphis police officers fired from the department for their actions after Nichols, a 29-year-old Black man, was pulled over. The first five officers, who are also Black, were fired and charged with multiple crimes including second-degree murder.
