Worth County deputy indicted

February 16, 2005

Albany- The Worth County Sheriff says he doesn't plan to suspend a deputy who was indicted Wednesday on a felony charge stemming from a bar fight.

A Dougherty County grand jury indicted Deputy Leonard Davis for aggravated assault.

He and Chief Deputy Bobby Sapp were in a fight in an Albany bar last November. The deputies thought someone was trying to manhandle a disabled customer, even though that man said they weren't.

Investigators say Davis cut a man with a knife. Sapp was not indicted because prosecutors say he'll accept a plea deal.
