Late Friday afternoon, the Mint Hill Police Department released a statement explaining why they did not charge Jackson that night.
"Officers spoke with Mr. Jackson's estranged wife who stated that she would prefer if Mr. Jackson left the property. There was no evidence of domestic violence. Officers spoke at length with Mrs. Jackson who stated that she did not want to pursue any charges or apply for a domestic violence protection order. Mr. Jackson left the premise voluntarily. Mr. Jackson voluntarily told Mint Hill officers he was a member of the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department."
Mint Hill Chief Ledford.
Sources continue to tell Cedar Posts that Mint Hill Police Department Chief Tim Ledford called Chief Rodney Monroe regarding Marcus Jackson within days of the September 28 incident and followed up with a detailed email stating much of what the Mint Hill Police Department has stated above.
Additionally sources tell Cedar Posts that the Mint Hill officers upon learning that Jackson was a CMPD officer, had an obligation to contract their supervisor at Mint Hill who in turn would have contacted CMPD.
So who at CMPD responded to the call from Mint Hill? Either Jackson's Sargent or the CMPD Duty Captain learned of Jackson's attack on the night of September 28, 2009. That call would have triggered both a call to IA and notice to Chief Monroe.
So not only do we have a memo, but prior to that we have contact from Mint Hill to CMPD and that sort of thing isn't just idle water cooler chat!
