Catoosa County Sheriff Gary Sisk said Wednesday he won't ask for an investigation into whether any of his officers failed to report traffic stops involving a federal agent suspected of drinking and driving.

Last week, local attorney McCracken Poston asked the newly elected sheriff to bring in the Georgia Bureau of Investigation to look into whether FBI Agent Ken Hillman had abused his authority with sheriff's office employees in the last year and a half.

Poston asserts that Hillman had been pulled over at least twice under suspicion of drinking and driving, but he either was let go or allowed to call a friend.
