ATLANTA (AP) — The officer who fatally shot Rayshard Brooks is asking a judge to change the conditions of his bond. Garrett Rolfe remains charged with murder, but his criminal case is stalled.

His request comes after his firing by the Atlanta police department was reversed last week. The Atlanta Civil Service Board found the city failed to follow its own procedures for disciplinary actions.

Rolfe’s attorneys say a state investigation shows prosecutors made misstatements about what happened the night of the shooting.

They’re asking for some of Rolfe’s bond conditions to be removed as he awaits the outcome of his case.
