PITTSBURGH -- He was sentenced to three years in jail last month, now a former Rankin police chief finds himself on the wrong side of the law again.
Darryl Briston turned himself in to state police Thursday morning.
He is facing numerous charges including oppression and theft by deception.
Police said those charges stem from allegations that Briston forced a tavern owner to pay for damages on a police cruiser.
The damages were paid, but Bristion allegedly kept the money.
Briston was sentenced last month for stealing close to 6 thousand dollars that was seized during a drug raid.
