A Knott County Police Officer has been suspended for three days without pay for taking his police vehicle outside of the county without permission, according to county officials.

Officials said Officer Nelson Reynolds took his police vehicle to Kingsport, Tennessee for a family emergency.

A picture shown to county officials and circulated to media outlets, showed Reynolds' vehicle parked in a handicap parking space in Kingsport.

County officials said Reynolds had a disabled person with him at the time, so there wasn't a problem with where he parked, but that he violated policy by not receiving permission from a supervisor to take the vehicle out of the county.

Officials said in addition to the unpaid suspension, Reynolds must reimburse the county for mileage.
