CAMILLA, GA (WALB) - A man is in the Mitchell County Jail after police say he started an altercation with an off-duty police officer.

43-year-old Russell Florence is now being charged with Terroristic Threats.

The GBI got a call Wednesday afternoon from Camilla Police about the incident.

This time, the police officer was the victim.

"Now the police officer was off-duty. It wasn't part of his duty. But someone basically got in his face and started an altercation," said GBI Special Agent Steve Turner.

The GBI is also charging Florence with simple battery and a suspended license.
