JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A former Hazlehurst police officer has been arrested following indictment on one count of extortion.

A Copiah County grand jury indicted 25-year-old LaGracha Amon Carter-Boyd, of Hazlehurst, on Friday and sheriff’s deputies arrested Boyd, Attorney General Jim Hood confirmed Monday.

The indictment alleges that Boyd, while on duty, accepted money from a citizen on the pretense of “fixing” a ticket that Boyd had previously issued the same citizen.

If convicted, Boyd faces up to five years in jail.
