Metro police have decommissioned an officer after he took a water bottle from the refrigerator of a business in downtown Nashville while he was investigating a burglar alarm.

Central Precinct Officer Wesley Feinstein has been assigned to desk duty as a result of his actions, which were reported by a fellow officer, authorities said.

Feinstein has been charged with theft, and the Office of Professional Accountability within Metro police will investigate him.

When Feinstein allegedly stole the water bottle while responding to a call from Emma Incorporated, a business on Lea Avenue at 3:45 p.m. on Saturday.

After he and another officer found an unlocked door and entered the building to search out any intruders, Feinstein found the water bottle inside the fridge and took it back to his patrol car, where the bottle was later found.

Feinstein graduated from the police academy two years ago.
