If you made a “who’s who” list in Clarksville, Frank Tate would be on almost everyone’s list. Today he made a new list — of people with outstanding arrest warrants. Tate, who was the Executive Director of the Industrial Development Board before his termination in 2021, is now a wanted man. According to the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, a warrant for his arrest has now been signed, charging him with stalking/trespassing.
Though the exact details of the warrant will not be released until the warrant is served, his beleaguered ex-girlfriend Bethany Sigler has filed for an order of protection against him in a case that is ongoing and recently rescheduled to be heard in May. The details included in that petition are believed to be the basis for the new warrant.
The petition states Bethany Sigler and Frank Tate dated for approximately two years, despite him being married for the entirety of the time. She claims she attempted to end the relationship multiple times, and each time the way he attempted to get back together became “more severe.” He is alleged to have shown up at her residence and sometimes demanded to be let inside, and other times attempted to enter. She says that during one breakup, Frank drove to her children’s daycare, knowing she would be dropping them off. She says after she refused to engage with him, that he followed her in his vehicle and cut her off in traffic, stopping in front of her and getting out of his vehicle to confront her.
Bethany claims that on more than one occasion, Frank entered her home and stood over her while she slept — she called this “terrifying.” She says in December 2022, she finally blocked him on all methods of communication. She says he came to her apartment while she was not home and rearranged items and left her a note. He also reportedly used multiple phone numbers to contact her, avoiding the blocked caller list.
The petition goes on to describe how both parties are in the same work industry and college classes and how Frank has reportedly changed flights and used professional contacts to attempt to contact her.
At the time of publication, Frank Tate had not been taken into custody on the criminal warrant. Once he is taken into custody, his bond will be set at $5,000. A hearing on the protective order will be held on May 9.
