(Memphis) A Memphis man is in critical condition after being shot multiple times by an off duty Pontotoc Sheriff’s Deputy early this morning.

The shooting happened around 1:55a.m. at the corner of Beale Street and November 6th Street.

Memphis Police say the 26-year-old man had been fondling a female and got into an argument with the off duty deputy.

The argument escalated into a physical fight.

At one point, two men began attacking the deputy, who fired shots hitting one of the men.

The Pontotoc Sheriff’s Deputy was taken into custody.

No charges have been filed and the investigation is ongoing.

      NEXT time the thug will think twice before fondling a woman. The punk got what he deserved. 20 bucks says the thug is unemployed and has an arrest record. Prepare for his mama’s rant on TV, about her poor poor son.

      I never understood the whole pig thing. I guess that makes the city they live in a pig pen and the food they eat pig slop. But I’ve heard pigs can’t sweat and that’s why they roll around in mud. If that’s the case, then why do I see so many officers sweating profusely in the summer? Anyway, since you seem to know more about the allegory than I do, I was hoping you’d shed some light on the subject and enlighten me. Seems like you know an awful lot and quite frankly I stand amazed in your seemingly endless display of knowledge.

    I just hope the shooter is treated like any other shooter, and not given preferential treatment because he’s a cop.

    We need to instill in local law enforcement a MUCH greater respect for the law and for the public.

    Man, what’s with the dudes in this city nowadays? all the rapes, dudes attack women, and dude just running around the streets like zoo animals. HOW DID THIS HAPPEN? We got a church on every corner just about, and you got all these heathens running a muck? Somebody in charge years ago really dropped the ball. This didn’t just HAPPEN either. It literally took years to get this bad.

      In his town he was probably respected as a law enforcement officer. We need to pick up this ball and run with it now. This type of behavior should be unacceptable in any town. Break the law, you should expect a cap


    I want to know what did the woman with the off duty cop do in all this? Why did he have to fight and then pull out a pistol if she was being attacked?

    How do women act so bossy then turn out to be so defenseless and needing a man’s help so often?

    And now comes the classic silence that falls over any criminal investigation of a cop for crimes committed in Memphis.

    The thin — no, make that fat — blue line never tires of defending their own.
