RONALD LEE GILMAN, Circuit Judge. This case arises from a bizarre set of circumstances involving two women, a deputy sheriff, and a crate full of cats and kittens. Joan Elizabeth Weser and Kimberly Goodson met through their joint work with an animal-rescue organization called Loudon County Friends of Animals (LCFOA). Weser owns a farm in Loudon County, which she allowed the organization to use as a cat-rescue facility. Later, however, after Weser and Goodson had a falling out, LCFOA ceased its operations on Weser’s farm.

The women’s differences reached their breaking point on November 7, 2016. On that date, 12 of LCFOA’s cats and kittens remained on Weser’s property, with Weser and Goodson having a disagreement over how the felines should be returned to LCFOA. That evening, Weser put the cats and kittens in a large crate, drove over to Goodson’s house, and placed the crate on Goodson’s driveway.

Goodson responded by calling Loudon County 911, causing Deputy Sheriff Lance Anderson and another officer to be sent to the scene. Anderson interviewed Goodson and subsequently arrested Weser for criminal trespass, but that charge was later dismissed. Weser then filed this lawsuit against Anderson and Goodson, raising claims under both federal and Tennessee law.

The district court granted summary judgment in favor of Anderson and Goodson on all of Weser’s claims. For the reasons set forth below, we AFFIRM the district court’s judgment in favor of Goodson as to all claims against her. With respect to Anderson, we AFFIRM the district court’s judgment in his favor as to the federal claims and the state-law claim for malicious prosecution, VACATE the district court’s judgment in his favor as to the state-law claims for false arrest and false imprisonment, and REMAND the case to the district court with instructions to decline to exercise supplemental jurisdiction as to those remaining claims.
