RINGGOLD, GA (WRCB) -- In an afternoon news conference, Catoosa County Sheriff Gary Sisk responded to accusations that Catoosa County deputies covered up for FBI Agent Ken Hillman.

Sisk said officials reviewed records and other information and have concluded there was no improprieties involving his deputies and Agent Hillman.

As part of his statement, Sisk added a policy change in how Catoosa County deputies will handle traffic stops.

However, Sisk said his office will change its policy on how deputies respond to traffic stops.

Last week, Channel 3's news partners at Times Free Press reported that Fort Oglethorpe Officer Greg Cross admitted to his current boss that when he was a sheriff's deputy he had pulled Hillman over when his bumper was dragging the ground and the agent appeared intoxicated.

Cross told Chief David Eubanks that he had allowed Hillman to call another detective to pick him up and drive his federal vehicle home.

Hillman is currently being investigated by FBI, his own agency.
