Valdosta - A former Valdosta police officer, accused of DUI, reckless conduct, and assault, has pleaded to reduced charges.

Thirty-four year old Kevin Trollinger was arrested at Spooks Bridge in Brooks County in March for firing his gun in the air and driving under the influence. He resigned from the Valdosta Police Department the next day.

Tuesday, Trollinger pleaded no contest to disorderly conduct and was fined $1,000. The other charges against him were dropped.

"We are very pleased," said Defense Attorney Sam Dennis.  "Anytime I can walk into a courtoom with 28 years worth of crimes against somebody and walk out with a $1,000 fine, its a great outcome."

The Police Officers Standards and Training has not yet decided whether Trollinger will lose his police certification.
