MEMPHIS, Tenn – A Memphis Police Officer found himself on the other side of the law after a bar fight on Christmas Eve.

Police were called to T. J. Mulligan’s on Houston Levee around 1:30 a.m. on December 24th.

A group of men told officers they were in an argument with three other men, then it escalated to a fight in the parking lot.

The suspects left the restaurant after the fight but a witness was able to get the tag number and gave that to police.

Investigators say off-duty officer Craig Brewer,  Johannes Vosloo and Charles Williams were responsible for the attack. Brewer and Vosloo were arrested and charged with Aggravated Assault and 2 counts of Simple assault.

An arrest warrant has been issued for Williams for the same charges.

“I will not tolerate behavior such as this from one of my officers,” said MPD Director Toney Armstrong. “I assure you he will be held accountable for his actions both legally and administratively.

Officer Brewer has been employed with MPD since October of 2010, but has been relieved of duty and is currently on non-enforcement status at the Mt. Moriah Station.
