A Bibb County sheriff’s lieutenant who was arrested Saturday for allegedly holding his wife and another man hostage has worked for the sheriff’s department for “several years,” according to the department.
Lt. Harry Fagan Fargason is charged with burglary, false imprisonment and aggravated assault after allegedly finding wife, Vivian Fargason, in Karl Crook’s recreational vehicle Saturday. According to reports, Fargason fired a shot during the five- to 10-minute altercation at Cottages at Juliette on Juliette Road in Monroe County.
Sean DeFoe, a spokesman for the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office, said Fargason has worked in the detention center lately, but has been with the department for a few years.
The lieutenant has not been suspended, DeFoe said, pending the outcome of the Monroe investigation.
Fargason was being held at the Monroe County jail without bond Sunday evening.
