2 detention officers accused of misconduct with inmates

DECATUR, Ga. (AP) — Two DeKalb County detention officers have been arrested after they were accused of having improper relationships with inmates.

DeKalb County Sheriff Jeffrey Mann said in a statement that 26-year-old Shanik Bishop and 30-year-old Nardia P.K. Reynolds were taken into custody at their homes without incident Wednesday on misconduct charges.

Authorities say Reynolds had a sexual relationship with someone in custody. She is charged with felony violation of oath by a public officer and sexual assault against a person in custody.

Bishop is accused of giving an inmate marijuana.

Both have been fired. It's unclear if either has an attorney.
