ARLINGTON, GA (WALB) -

The GBI has arrested Donald Wayne Reeves, 57, of Blackshear, after Reeves was indicted in Calhoun County for the 1984 shooting of Arlington Police officer Jimmy Jackson.

On the night of February 21, 1984, at approximately 11:00 p.m., Arlington Police Officer Jimmy Jackson was shot once, in the forearm.  Jackson underwent surgery and recovered from his wound.
