A jailer for the Hall County Sheriff's Office resigned Monday after his arrest Saturday following an altercation in North Hall County.

Conner Jeremy Comeaux, 20, was charged with simple battery, reckless conduct and discharging a firearm near a public roadway after a dispute with Courtney Ellen Barker, 19.

Barker was also arrested and charged with simple battery and both have since been released on bond.

Sgt. Stephen Wilbanks with the Hall County Sheriff's Office said it appeared the two were in a "boyfriend/girlfriend relationship."

Hall County sheriff's deputies responded to the incident at about 1:30 a.m. Saturday in the 2500 block of Venture Drive.

Deputies allege Comeaux discharged a shotgun into the air while on or near the road in front of the residence. No one was injured and no property was damaged.

Comeaux's employment status was under review following the incident. He had been employed as a probationary jailer since May.

"In order to maintain a high level of public trust and confidence, employees are expected to maintain the highest standards of professional and personal conduct, both on and off duty," Wilbanks said following Comeaux's arrest.
