CHATTANOOGA – Following an investigation by Special Agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, a former South Pittsburg police officer has been charged with assault and official misconduct.

At the request of 12th District Attorney General J. Michael Taylor, on October 10, 2017, TBI Special Agents began investigating then-South Pittsburg police officer Joshua Chance, on an allegation of assault. During the course of the investigation, Agents developed information that on October 7, 2017, during law enforcement response to a residence on Old Jasper Road, Chance assaulted an individual after that man had been detained by law enforcement officers. Joshua Chance is no longer an employee of the South Pittsburg Police Department.

On Monday, the Marion County Grand Jury returned indictments charging Joshua Dale Chance (DOB 11/28/1990) with one count of Assault, one count of Aggravated Assault, and one count of Official Misconduct. Thursday morning, Chance surrendered himself to a TBI Agent and was booked into the Marion County Jail on a $5,000 bond.
