Bibb Sheriff Turns Findings on Lucas Case Over to GBI | News
The Bibb County Sheriff's has completed their investigation into allegations that State Sen. David Lucas choked a child at a campaign event.
Lt. Sean DeFoe says they've turned their findings over to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
He said the next step would be the GBI turning both the sheriff's office findings and its own findings over to to District Attorney David Cooke.
Cooke will decide whether charges should be filed in the case.
Back in August, a Macon woman said Lucas choked her son, Chase King. The teen is the grandson of Terry Tripp, who was running against Lucas's wife, councilwoman Elaine Lucas, for county commission.
DeFoe said the sheriff's office cannot disclose their findings on the case.
Rodney Wall with the GBI's Perry office says he's reviewing all of the Bibb County files and his own agency's files to see if any additional information is needed.
Wall says once he's satisfied the case is complete, he'll turn the case over to Cooke.
Sheriff David Davis asked the GBI to assist in the case due to the potential conflict of interest.
