AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- Augusta Commissioner Donnie Smith will leave Georgia State Patrol amid a policy investigation.
The GSP lieutenant is in the middle of a policy investigation by the Georgia Department of Public Safety. GSP said his retirement will kick in on Labor Day.
When it comes to his job as a Commissioner, the Attorney General's Office said they would only get involved if the investigation leaves him indicted on a felony charge. Then, the governor would appoint a group to investigate.
Smith has worked for GSP for 21 years and has been the District 7 Commissioner since 2012.
The GSP retirement should not affect Augusta Commission, Commissioner Marion Williams said.
