Channel 3 has new details in the TBI’s investigation of Hamilton County District Attorney Candidate Coty Wamp.

Wamp is currently running against General Neal Pinkston, who asked the TBI to investigate after a shooting involving the Soddy Daisy Police Department.

Sam Elliot, the city attorney for Soddy Daisy, says this all started because the Soddy Daisy Police Department suspected that the wrong person may have been arrested.

According to the request by General Pinkston for the TBI to investigate, Wamp, who is currently the legal counsel for the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office, is accused of witness tampering and obstruction of justice.

Wamp is running against Neal Pinkston in the race for District Attorney General in the 11th Judicial District.
