State Sen. David Lucas, (D) Macon
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation or the GBI turned over its investigative file into the allegations that Senator David Lucas choked a 14-year-old child to the District Attorney's Office Friday. That's according to a news release from District Attorney David Cooke's office.
Cooke says they will go over the files which include numerous reports and witness interviews from both the GBI and the Bibb County Sheriff's Office.
Cooke went onto say in the release that they will review these files to determine whether or not there's enough evidence to show that a crime took place. Cooke says once the review is completed they will then decide whether or not to pursue criminal charges.
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.
