ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A Dougherty County Police Officer assigned to the Albany Dougherty Drug Unit is arrested for a sexual attack on a woman while working an off-duty security job.
Albany Police charged 41-year old David Gilliam with sexual battery, false imprisonment, and violation of oath of office.
Investigators say a 26 year old woman reported Gilliam tried to rape her in one of the rooms at the Superior Creek Lodge on North Slappey Boulevard February 4th. Gilliam worked at that motel as a Security Guard.
Dougherty County Police Chief Don Cheek said "He has been on suspension with pay status since the morning after this incident last week. We place him in a suspension status at that time and he had been relieved of all duties."
Warrants for Gilliam's arrest were signed Wednesday morning.
He turned himself in at the Sheriff's Office and was released on bond.
Dougherty County Police fired him Wednesday.
He worked for D-C-P since October 2005 and was assigned to the drug squad the last two years.
