According to reports from WRDW in Augusta, Ga., the prisoner also took the deputy's weapon. Allendale authorities located the deputy and he is OK. The vehicle is a black marked Stephens County sheriff's deputy car with orange markings.

Sullivan is 5'10" and weighs 160 pounds. he has brown hair and green eyes. He has several tattoos including a coffin with wings on his neck and chest area, and skulls on both arms. Sullivan is from Bowersville, Ga.
