Newton County, GA – Darrell Mathis, 40, was charged with distributing Mary Jane and carrying a firearm in the furtherance of a drug trafficking offense, authorities said.

“This is an embarrassment to the Newton County Sheriff’s Office, as well as law enforcement in general,”

Newton County Sheriff Ezell Brown said in a statement Friday.

U.S. Attorney Sally Quillian Yates said the case was a reminder that no one is above the law.

“This defendant used his position as a police officer to openly violate the very laws that he was sworn to uphold,”

Yates said.

“Selling Mary Jane out of his police car while wearing a badge and uniform is outrageous.”

On August 8, FBI officials said Mathis sold a pound of Mary Jane to an undercover agent, then went with the agent to discuss selling more drugs to another undercover agent whom he believed was a drug dealer, according to the federal criminal complaint.

He took his deputy badge and gun to the meeting, and showed them to the undercover agents, saying,

“Don’t worry, I’m on your side,”

according to the criminal complaint.

If they find former-Officer Mathis guilty on all counts, he’s facing life in prison.
