MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – The former police chief for a town in south-central Alabama faces multiple charges of domestic violence.

In a news release Thursday, Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall said former Lockhart Police Chief Franklin Jackson, of Lockhart, surrendered a day earlier at the Covington County Sheriff’s Office.

Marshall’s office did not say whether he has an attorney who could speak on his behalf.

Marshall said a Covington County grand jury indicted Jackson Sept. 28.

Details about Jackson’s alleged crimes have not been released. It wasn’t immediately clear when Jackson left his job at the town’s police department.
