Bibb deputy fired for allegedly fighting customer at Macon store

Bibb County Sheriff David Davis has fired one of his deputies after he was arrested for aggravated assault.

The sheriff's office says Deputy Albert Jordan, 51, was off-duty when he saw a man at a gas station buy tobacco without showing his ID. 

Deputies were called to Citgo, 1681 Rocky Creek Road in reference to a disturbance just after 10 p.m., according to a sheriff's office incident report.

The deputy made contact with the victim, Michael Hodges, 25, who was at the store with his nephews. Hodges told the deputy that he was purchasing tobacco products when a customer in the store confronted him asking for his ID, the incident report states.

That customer was Jordan.

When Hodges didn't show his ID to the off-duty deputy, Jordan grabbed him by the neck pushing him up against the glass cashier's booth breaking some of the items he was purchasing, the incident report states.

Hodges also alleges that Jordan pointed his firearm at him, according to the incident report.

When the responding deputy questioned Jordan, the off-duty deputy claimed that he heard the clerk asking Hodges for his ID. Jordan claimed Hodges didn't produce an ID for the clerk so he asked him for his ID. Jordan alleges that's when Hodges tried to get physical with him.

Jordan said he restrained Hodges and denied pointing his gun at him, the incident report states.

The clerk told the responding deputy that he didn't even ask Hodges for his ID because he's a regular customer.

Jordan was book into the Bibb County jail Wednesday on $27,700 bond.
