ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany firefighter who fought to get his job back has been arrested for lying to law enforcement.

At about 2 Saturday morning, Jolivette was arrested at a family member's home in the Habersham Road.

The arrest comes after warrants were issued by the Chattahoochee County Sheriff's Office, near Columbus.

Jolivette is accused of impersonating a uniformed officer and providing false information to police.

A Chattahoochee County Sheriff's deputy recently stopped Jolivette for speeding.

The deputy didn't give him a ticket because Jolivette said he worked for the Dougherty County Sheriff's office.

That deputy later decided to that information out and found that Jolivette lied.

Back in April, Jolivette was in more hot water on the job.

The fire chief fired Jolivette after he lied about ordering an on-duty crew to help clean up a relative's flooded house.

He got his job back but was demoted.
