Nude photo found on phone belonging to Nashville mayor’s ex-bodyguard

Nashville Mayor Megan Barry has apologized for having an affair with the head of her security detail.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Court documents say the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has found a nude and partially nude photo of a woman on the phone of Nashville Mayor Megan Barry’s former bodyguard.

The agency believes the evidence shows that Barry engaged in an affair with former Sgt. Rob Forrest while he was on duty. The Tennessean first reported the documents.

The photos are referenced in an affidavit in support of a search warrant seeking possession of Barry’s cellphone. Nashville Judge Steve Dozier signed the document Tuesday, and it was filed in court Thursday. The TBI says it has probable cause to seek the evidence.

The affidavit also says the TBI has found 260 deleted chats between Forrest’s phone and Barry’s phone number as well as 35 deleted call logs.
