Press Releases

The Chattanooga Police Department's Communications Office issued a press release on Saturday, June 16, 2018 regarding a non-fatal shooting where a suspect was arrested. The accuracy of that release was publicly called into question by Attorney Lee Davis who represents the suspect, Jeff Styles. The CPD Communications Office is reissuing the official press release distributed via email on Saturday by our office which does not include the information that Mr. Davis and his client allege.

In the release issued by Mr. Davis on Sunday, June 17, 2018 it states, "While being interviewed by police at the hospital, Styles never said that he “blacked out” before, during,or after this incident. Styles “attributes this error to an interview conducted while he was being administered morphine for his gun shot wound. The Chattanooga Police Department public information officer who released that statement was mistaken.”

CPD has reached out to Mr. Davis to request a copy of any document he may have mistaken to have come from the CPD Communications/Public Information Office. The CPD Communications Office has issued only one release on this incident involving Mr. Styles and that release is reissued below.
