Glynn County Police Officer Robert “Corey” Sasser, 41, was arrested Monday and booked into Glynn County Detention Center on charges of criminal trespassing and simple battery under the family violence act.

He posted $4,856 bond and was released.

No further information on his arrest was immediately available Tuesday evening.

Sasser was one of the officers involved in the on-duty shooting of Caroline Small following a police chase in 2010. The shooting eventually led to her death.

Judge Lisa Godbey Wood later ruled in a civil rights lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Brunswick that he and former officer, the late Todd Simpson, did not violate Small’s constitutional rights in the incident.

Neither officer was indicted or charged criminally after the incident.
