ABBEVILLE, ALABAMA – Henry County Sheriff’s investigators have arrested an Abbeville police officer on a criminal complaint that he choked a 15-year-old boy until he passed out.
The sheriff’s office says 22-year-old Davey Jones turned himself in on Monday.
The boy’s mother signed a warrant charging Jones with misdemeanor reckless endangerment. He was released from custody after he posted a $500 bond.
Sheriff William Maddox says the boy did not require medical attention.
Abbeville Police Chief Mike Jones says Davey Jones was placed on administrative leave without pay.
Headland Police Chief Mark Jones, the father of Davey Jones, says the teenager and others had showed up uninvited to a home where his son occasionally stayed overnight.
