As of Tuesday, six officers have already been fired and one more has been relieved of duty. Chief Legal Officer Jennifer Sink tells the Memphis City Council that the number of officers disciplined could rise to 13. Memphis police spokeswoman Karen Rudolph says six officers whose involvement in the Nichols arrest has not been publicly disclosed could face administrative charges.
