Valdosta - A South Georgia police officer is arrested for making terroristic threats.

Valdosta police officer Ray Whitfield is charged with one count of terroristic threats and two counts of cruelty to children. Investigators responded to a domestic dispute at his home after receiving a 911 call from his wife.

After an investigation, they found that he threatened his wife in front of their two children.

He has resigned from his job. "As far as I know he was a good employee, did his job thoroughly, but he committed a crime and its our job to do something about it for the department, and for the public," said VPD Lt. Brian Childress.

Whitfield had been an officer in the department's narcotics unit for three years. He's being held in the Lowness County jail.
