Channel 4 News reported in July (2013) that Ross actually worked at the sheriff's department twice, the first time.

Then, former Sheriff Truman Jones accepted his resignation after Ross, according to his personnel file uncovered by WSMV, lied to Murfreesboro Police about having insurance after a fender bender accident.
