Andalusia Police Officer Convicted Of Harrassment


By Amanda Wade

An Andalusia Police Officer is convicted of harassment after a dispute with an agent at the Convington County Drug Task Force office.

Officer Rodrick Covington, has been sentenced to 30 days in the county jail and fines after Covington used fighting language against Agent David Harrell II.  Court documents state Covington knew he was not welcome at the Drug Task Force and refused to leave Harrell's office.  The court order also states there is evidence of a troubling relationship between the Covington County Drug Task Force and the Andalusia Police Department.   
The jail time was suspended on the condition Covington pays his fines on time. Andalusia Police Chief Wilbur Williams says he has no comment at this time about the events.
