After seeing this story I became all ears. 😂 

This guy joined the force to harass every person who bullied him in school over those ears. He has no interest in protecting the public or anything police related. He just wants his bullies to see that he isn’t a clown, and that he wasn’t related to Dumbo. 

Listen. When you have something like this that sticks out,  you’ve gotta expect to be laughed at. There isn’t a hat in the world that would help this guy. Maybe the fight that he had was about his partner not having any privacy. Maybe he eavesdrops on her conversations and she’s tired of it. Maybe the fight broke out because he won’t allow her to turn the volume up on the TV because it’s too loud for him. 

Maybe he’s tired of getting swimmers ear. Maybe he’s upset because his shirts take too long to put on because they have to go over those ears. 

Maybe he’s upset because every time he pulls someone over, they burst out laughing in his face. 

Maybe he’s upset because he can’t wear standard ear muffs and the ear buds don’t stay in securely. 

 We’re learning more about what led to the arrest of a Chattanooga Police officer. 

He is now off the job while the department investigates. 

James Oister has been with the department for seven years and the situation stems from an argument on Christmas morning. 

An arrest report states Oister became upset and the situation turned physical. 

The officer noted in the report the victim had red marks as well as cuts and bruises on their body. 

A witness statement backed up what the victim reported. 

Oister was arrested on Monday for a domestic violence charge. 

He has since bonded out of jail. 

He is due in court next week. 

Chattanooga Police tell Channel 3 he has been relieved of duty pending the investigation. 

County on Channel 3 to let you know what happens. 

A Chattanooga police officer was arrested Christmas Day, and charged with domestic assault.

CPD Officer James R. Oister has been relieved of duty, pending an internal investigation, according to spokesman Elisa Myzal. 

Channel 3 has requested the arrest affidavit from Chattanooga police, and will update this developing story.

OK here it is

According to his arrest affidavit, Oister went to his estranged wife’s house in Harrison to watch their children open presents on Christmas and became argumentative over some gift wrapping.


When Tammy Oister said she would start recording his behavior, James Oister grabbed her by the arm with one hand and by her throat with the other, the arrest affidavit says.

Then he pinned her against a door and threw her into a cabinet, the affidavit says.

Tammy Oister’s uncle witnessed the incident and tried to stop James Oister, the affidavit says. But James Oister told him to “back off” before ultimately leaving the home, the affidavit says.

Officers said Tammy Oister had red marks on her neck and a cut on her lower lip when they got to the home at 1:43 p.m.

There was also a bruise on her left foot and the right side of her forehead, the affidavit says.

The incident happened around 10:15 a.m., according to Tammy Oister’s statement, and officers asked why she reported it a few hours later.

According to the affidavit, Tammy Oister said she dropped her children off at her mother’s house in Cleveland first and called 911 when she got home.

Shortly thereafter, James Oister turned himself in to authorities and made a $1,500 bond, records show.

His first appearance in Hamilton County General Sessions Court is Jan. 4 before Judge Alex McVeagh.

Honestly I think MY thoughts on what caused the fight was more accurate or at least more funny.
