Tifton-- The Tift County School Board President, accused of shooting a man's car with his shotgun, has resigned as board president.
Richard Golden says he will serve the remainder of his term as a board member, but he will no longer be the board's leader. He made that announcement during a special School board meeting Thursday, saying it's in the best interest of the community for him to step down.
If he's indicted on a felony criminal damage charge in the case, he could be suspended by a state ethics panel. Golden admits he shot the car of a man who was trespassing on his land.
