Terrell County-  A Terrell County man with Tuberculosis at the center of a court dispute in Terrell County could get the treatment he needs as early as Friday.

Terrell County Sheriff John Bowens had originally refused to transport 41 year old Michael Greene to a South Carolina hospital for treatment calling it a liability. After court proceedings Judge John Crosby urged Bowens and the Health Department to work out an arrangement. Bowens agreed to have a deputy transport Greene only because a R.N. from the Terrell County Health Department has agreed to go along to deal with any health issues Greene might have.

Greene has been in quarantine inside the Dougherty County Jail since April seventh.
