A Memphis police officer is facing charges after allegedly getting an ax out of his car after a fight at a restaurant. Dartelle Joyner is charged with disorderly conduct and public intoxication. Police say he got the ax from his car after a security guard broke up the fight between Joyner and a woman at a restaurant on Primacy Parkway, near Ridgeway in East Memphis last Thursday.

Joyner’s been with MPD since 2010, but has been relieved of duty pending investigation.
