ALBANY, GA (WALB) -A former assistant Albany Fire Chief was indicted for impersonating a police officer by the Chattahoochee County Grand Jury. The city will now suspend him without pay.
Rod Jolivette was indicted Monday on a felony charge of impersonating an officer and speeding. A Chattahoochee Sheriff's Deputy stopped Jolivette August 18th for going 83 miles per hour in a 55 mile an hour zone.
The Deputy says Jolivette claimed he worked for the Dougherty County Sheriff's office. Jolivette was arrested August 22nd at a relative's home in Albany.
Jolivette was demoted earlier this year after ordering a on-duty fire crew to clean up a relative's flooded home and then lying about it.
