COWETA COUNTY, Ga. — Foul language, racial slurs and a shocking incentive that may have led to a violent beating: A Channel 2 Action News investigation exposes the threatening text messages that forced a police chief off the job.
At first, Grantville, a city of fewer than 4,000 people, looks lost in time. But it's technology that took down the chief of police.
The drama unfolded last month after a source gave Channel 2 Action News a series of text messages Chief Doug Jordan sent to some of his officers back in 2013.
The first set started with, "OK. June Bug saw Henry and his wife at Dollar General, shot him the bird and yelled (expletive) U at him . So gloves off first officer to take him down gets a steak dinner" then, "(expletive) That drug pushing mother (expletive)." and finally, "We going to find that piece of (expletive)."
Diamant asked around town and learned June Bug is Leon Buchannan. He found him and showed him the chief's texts.
"He threatened somebody's life, like they making bets on me or something," Buchannan said.
