The other deputy, Cortez Scott, worked in the jail. Massee says he used improper force on an inmate and injured him. The GBI had to step in to investigate.
Massee says Lee worked for the sheriff's office for nine years and Scott worked for the department for two years.
Lee was fired May 31 and Scott was fired on May 24.
