According to The Tennessean, Franklin deputy chief of police Mike Jordan “had been routinely sharing information” with the Nashville ABC affiliate’s reporter about an investigation into a GPS device found on a car owned by actress Ashley Judd.
Police were tipped off after receiving an e-mail Nov. 11 from Cordan requesting information from police spokesman Sgt. Charlie Warner about the GPS device found on Ashley Judd’s car on Nov. 8. Cordan’s e-mail to Warner used language taken verbatim from police documents.
“It appeared to be a clip and paste from an internal document that Andy Cordan was using in asking for information,” [Franklin Police Chief David] Rahinsky said in during the hearing.
Records show Jordan had e-mailed Cordan on Nov. 11 telling him about the GPS device as well as three other investigations. Police also found numerous other e-mails going back several months between the two where Jordan shared information with Cordan. Read more
