TAZEWELL (WATE) - A Tennessee Highway Patrol trooper served a 20 day suspension for having sex while on duty.

THP says Trooper Michael Toby Cameron was working a midnight shift on August 23 and received a phone call from a woman.

Cameron told the woman he was on his way to the THP post in Claiborne County and was going to stop to get something to eat.

The woman then invited Cameron to stop by her house to eat. While there, Cameron and the woman had sexual intercourse.

A few moments later, Cameron heard a crash with injuries dispatched over his radio, left the home, and proceeded to the scene.

Cameron served his suspension in November, but details were just released Tuesday to give Cameron time to appeal.

The official reason for the suspension was conduct unbecoming of an employee in state service.
