P.O.S.T.: Lay Ineligible to Run for Sheriff

Nashville, TN (2018-04-12) The Peace Officers Standards and Training Committee (POST) has ruled that Anthony Lay, who had petitioned to run for the Office of Sheriff, is ineligible.

The POST Commission met in a special called session on Tuesday to consider a request by former Scott County Sheriff Anthony Lay to review their recent decision that he was ineligible to run for the Office of Sheriff.  According to documents from the meeting, the committee voted 9 to 0 with one member abstaining to uphold its finding that Lay was not qualified to run for the office because he did not meet the one year residency requirement.  The committee ruled that Lay missed the requirement by two days.
