A Crawford County deputy sheriff was suspended with pay after his arrest in a bar fight in Spalding County early Sunday morning.
Deputy Scott Richard Bruce was involved in an altercation at Country Rock Bar and Grill, 2700 N Expressway, in Spalding County about 2 a.m.
Apparently, Bruce and another person had a disagreement and a fight broke out.
Deputies with the Spalding County Sheriff’s office arrested Bruce, who was not on duty at the time of this incident.
Bruce was charged with obstructing or hindering law enforcement officers and disorderly conduct, both misdemeanors.
Bruce has worked for the Crawford County Sheriff’s Office since May 22, in the Patrol Division. He was suspended pending completion of an internal investigation.
