MACON, Ga. — Bibb County Sheriff David Davis will be out of office over the next few weeks as he undergoes treatment for leukemia.

According to a news release, Davis has been admitted to Emory University Hospital. It says his prognosis is ‘very good,’ but the treatment will require him to be out of the office.
