No charges will be filed in Hall County against David Kimbrell, the former director of the county emergency management agency who was fired in late October.

The former director was fired after an illicit video was discovered on the county’s information system, leading to a criminal investigation by the Hall County Sheriff’s Office. County administration and members of the Hall County Board of Commissioners have been silent on the issue since the investigation began.

Sheriff’s Office spokesman Deputy Stephen Wilbanks said Thursday that no charges will be filed in Hall County, but that the “investigation indicated that the matter should be forwarded to Savannah-Chatham Metro Police Department for investigation in their jurisdiction.”

An investigator with the Savannah-Chatham department said he wasn’t personally aware of the investigation but was researching the issue with his department.

Kimbrell did not immediately return a request for comment. Hall County was preparing to respond to an open records request filed by The Times for additional information related to Kimbrell’s case on Thursday, but the documents were not available by deadline.
