SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Sgt. Malik Khaalis may be behind bars, but he's still technically a member of the force.

Khaalis was arrested Saturday and charged with nine felony counts, including lying and violating his oath of office.

He was indicted last month but wasn't arrested until Sunday, when he returned from serving overseas with the Air Force Reserve.

As of now, he's still on unpaid leave from Metro Police.

No bond has been set for Khaalis, and he's due to appear before a judge on Thursday morning.
