ALBANY, GA (WALB) – A year after an Albany firefighter was charged with impersonating an officer, his case is dismissed.

The District Attorney in Chattahoochee County dropped the charges against Rod Jolivette.

He was accused of claiming he worked for the Dougherty County Sheriff's Office when he was stopped for speeding last August.

Jolivette remains suspended, but his attorney notified city leaders Wednesday of the dropped charges.

Earlier this year, Jolivette sued the city claiming racial discrimination.

He had been fired for ordering firefighters to help clean up a relative's flood-damaged home.

He was later re-instated and demoted.
