Jury deadlocked in trial of former Gallaway Police Chief

A mistrial was declared Tuesday in the trial of a former Gallaway Police Chief.

Billy Phillips was charged with theft and official misconduct.

An indictment against Phillips accuses him of pocketing $5,500 from the sale of a high powered engine that was donated to the city.

Phillips has maintained he is innocent.

Tuesday, a jury deliberating the case told the judge they were deadlocked.

Prosecutors will now have to decide whether or not to retry Phillips.
