Covington County Sheriff's Deputy killed in collision

Tragic. Another deadly accident on Hwy 84.

"I don't believe there's an officer in this county who slept last night," said Mark Anderson of the Coffee County Sheriff's Department. Anderson saw the start of Lassiter's law enforcement career and worked with him on more than one occasion. "You know, you put on your vest, you expect to get short at, you expect to get into fights, you deal with meth labs - dying like this just isn't right," said Anderson.

Lassiter died in the line of duty.
