Valdosta - A South Georgia police officer who was arrested Tuesday has resigned.

Valdosta Police Officer Kevin Trolinger is charged with driving under the influence, public intoxication, reckless conduct, aggravated assault, and discharging a firearm while intoxicated.

Brooks County investigators found him and two friends hanging out at Spook Bridge off Blue Springs Road around 5:00 Tuesday morning. They say Trolinger was drunk and had been shooting his gun in the air.

Wednesday, he handed his resignation into the Valdosta Police Department.

Trolinger had been a patrol officer since 1999.
