Former Police Chief Accused of Tasering Girlfriend Released from Jail

By  | 

A former Leon County police chief accused of shocking his girlfriend with a taser, is expected to be released from jail Friday afternoon.

A judge lowered Oly Ivy's bond Friday morning from $100,000 to $20,000 after Ivy underwent a psychological evaluation in Huntsville earlier this week, according to Ivy's attorney.

Ivy, 30, was arrested in Anderson County earlier this month and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Last week, Ivy's attorney unsuccessfully tried to have his bond amount lowered, but a judge ruled Ivy would have to undergo psychological testing first.

Ivy has been stripped of his badge and title as Oakwood Police Chief. He was sworn in as the city's first police chief nearly two months ago.
