“Georgia is home to some of the most impressive law enforcement officers in the nation,” Sen. David Perdue said. “I applaud President Trump on nominating Sheriff Michael Yeager. He will serve our nation well and make Georgia proud.”
Yeager said he is grateful for the planned nomination.
“It’s been a huge honor to be nominated,” he told the Newnan Times-Herald.
The marshals service is the enforcement agency of the federal courts and the federal government’s top agency for investigating fugitives.
For instance, a man who allegedly shot and killed another man at a northwest Atlanta rooming house was captured last Tuesday by the U.S. Marshals Southern Regional Task Force.
If Yeager takes over the marshal job, Coweta County will hold a special election to complete his term.
Under state law, Chief Deputy James Yarbrough would become the interim sheriff until the vacancy is filled by election.
