Judge sentences officer Andrew Delke 3 years in death of Daniel Hambrick after chaos erupts in court

Chaos erupted in the courtroom Friday morning during a plea deal hearing for ex-Nashville police officer Andrew Delke as he pleaded guilty in the on-duty shooting death of Daniel Hambrick.

Delke pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter Friday. He was previously charged with murder. Judge Monte Watkins sentenced Delke to three years in jail.

Hambrick’s mother became very emotional, yelling and screaming at times over the loss of her son.

“Because of you. I lost my son because of you. I hate you. I don’t accept your apology,” she screamed while pointing at the former Nashville police officer.
