QUITMAN, GA (WALB) -

A Quitman police officer, fired after a fight with a Brooks County Sheriff's Deputy, is back on the job. 
 
Ivan Davis was fired January 3rd after getting into a scuffle with the deputy during an arrest they were both participating  in in November.

Davis was indicted last month on two counts of disorderly conduct and one count of simple battery. He appealed to the Quitman City Council and was reinstated to his job pending the outcome of the trial.
 
"From the GBI's investigation, they presented the circumstances to the grand jury. The grand jury indicted him on three criminal counts," Wesley Ross, Quitman Police Chief, explained.
 
 
Davis is currently assigned to an administrative position at the police department. There's no word yet on a trial date
