MEMPHIS, Tenn.– The Shelby County deputy in trouble for a social media post he allegedly made will now be paid.

Jeremy McNary was suspended without pay while the Sheriff’s Office investigates a post about when protestors closed the I-40 bridge.

This morning however, we are told he will now be suspended with pay because, “the allegations pertaining to Deputy Jeremy McNary do not currently meet the criteria for being relieved of duty without pay.”

The Sheriff’s Office benched him just days after a post that said, “They need to get a firehouse and spray these folks, they’re standing on 18-wheelers and sh**.”

Earlier this year, McNary was celebrated after he saved the life of a woman.

McNary is not the only law enforcement officer to get in trouble for posts on social media.

Two Memphis Police Officers are under investigation for a Snapchat post of a gun pointed at an image of an African American Child.

A Nashville police officer was suspended after posting a Black Panthers photo to his page.
