A female assistant district attorney said she filed an assault report against Steve Bebb, district attorney for the 10th District, because he grabbed her arm.
Cynthia Lecroy-Schemel said last Wednesday that her co-worker, Tish Myers, "got her attention about Steve Bebb screaming at another co-worker, Katie Brazier."
The report says Ms. Lecroy-Schemel said she tried to intervene, and, when she did, "Steve Bebb grabbed her arm and acted like he was going to punch her."
She said Investigator Calvin Rocholt then stepped between them.
She said she was not sure which arm was grabbed. There were no marks on her arms.
She said attorney Richard Fisher was also present along with others from the office.
Ms. Lecroy-Schemel was fired, but then reinstated. The assault charge was dropped.
Cleveland Police said, "The Cleveland Police Department has closed the case involving Cindy Lecroy Schemel. Our department dedicated many administrative work hours into this matter over the past four days. We have worked with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation to assure that the matter was handled appropriately. The matter was resolved within the district attorney's office before we had a clear direction for the investigation. A non-prosecution form was signed by Mrs. Schemel on April 8, 2014. At that point, we concluded our involvement in this matter."
A copy of this incident report is available for pick up at the Cleveland Police Department lobby at 100 Church Street, Cleveland, Tn. 37311.
