This morning, Monroe County Sheriff’s burst through the door of Lt. Commander Fitzpatrick’s residence and arrested him for failing to appear in court last Friday, a date the Monroe County court failed to notify Mr. Fitzpatrick of before he learned on Monday via the local press that an arrest warrant was issued for missing the court date.
Monroe County officials made no effort to contact Fitzpatrick prior to kicking his door in Wednesday morning, according to all available information. But less than an hour before Sheriff’s burst in, Fitzpatrick was reportedly on the phone with the Knoxville office of the FBI, whom he claims advised that they had opened an investigation into Monroe County government corruption.
Friday’s court date was a hearing on the request to withdraw representation by Fitzpatrick’s attorney, Steve Pidgeon, a request reportedly denied by the court, once again according to local news reports.
On Monday the 25th, Knoxnews issued a report stating that Special Circuit Judge Jon Blackwood ordered Fitzpatrick arrested and held without bond until his Dec. 1 trial. The press knew about the Friday hearing before Fitzpatrick did, and was reporting the arrest warrant before Fitzpatrick had been notified of the court date or arrest warrant.
