Lee County--A former candidate for Lee County sheriff claims Lee County's current Chief Deputy broke the law.

Jimmy Kerfoot is asking for a Superior Court hearing during which he hopes to convince a judge to issue an arrest warrant for Chief Deputy Dennis Parker.

Kerfoot says Parker illegally solicited a criminal history report on him from the Georgia Crime Information Center Council.

Parker says his lawyer has advised him to not comment on the issue. The tentative court date is set for April 6th in Lee County Superior Court.

Tonight before, Albany city commission, Jimmy Kerfoot lost the right to sell alcohol at a convenience store, Bald Eagle Foods, he owned earlier this year.

Tonight, a new owner tried unsuccessfully to restore the alcohol license.

The city revoked Bald Eagle Foods' alcohol license after clerks were caught four times selling alcohol to minors. They recently reapplied for a new license under a different owner's name.

Tonight, commissioners put a hold on that application for 60 days until it's determined if the store is fit to sell alcohol again.

"Although the ordinance, it prohibits against the individual and not the location, they're researching laws to see if there is anything that may have been overlooked. That actually includes the location as well," says W. Nathaniel Norman.

After the 60 day hold, commissioners will vote on whether to grant the license to Bald Eagle Foods.
