There's some trouble in the Jenkins County Sheriff's Office, with the sheriff at the center. The state's investigating Sheriff Bobby Womack, and yesterday when reporters tried to talk to him about the problems, he tried to crawl out the window at the sheriff's office. They caught it on tape.

Critics say he used inmates to work at his logging firm, farm and home.

He's handed in his resignation, citing health concerns.
