At the request of the Cheatham County Sheriff’s Office and District Attorney General Ray Crouch, TBI Agents are investigating the death of a man found at a home in the 100 block of Sweeney Drive in Pegram yesterday. The man has been identified as Jordan Norris, 19.
According to the TBI, autopsy results are pending and the investigation continues.
A former inmate in the Cheatham County Jail, Norris sued the Cheatham County Sheriff’s Office for a tasing incident that occurred in November of 2016 while he was in custody. A settlement was reached for an undisclosed amount in the globally publicized case.
Norris was recently charged with drug possession, possession of a handgun while under the influence, and driving under the influence— all charges that violated his probation from two other incidents that resulted in his arrest earlier this year.
He was expected to appear in court next month.
