The man wanted for allegedly falsifying information on his application to become Marietta’s next fire chief has turned himself in.

Robert Hume was released from the Cobb County Jail Sunday after he turned himself in to earlier in that day.

FOX 5 News first disclosed the allegation last week when police issued a warrant for his arrest.

Police said he lied about his military history, claiming he had 10 service awards.

Authorities said he also lied about his rank and falsified his discharge papers.

They have charged Hume with forgery.
