ELBERTA, Alabama -

Former Elberta Police Chief Mickey Pledger will never work in law enforcement again.

Pledger-who was arrested in 2011 after he lied about being ambushed and shot outside the police department- cut a deal with proescutors Friday to avoid going to trial and facing possible jail time.

Pledger admitted he made up the entire story about the shooting and attack.

In the plea agreement with the Baldwin County District Attorney's Office- Pledger plead guilty to shooting into an occupied building, filing a false report and tampering with evidence.

In the plea agreement, Pledge was stripped of his police powers, will not be allowed to own a gun and was given six years probation.

Pledger was also ordered to issue the town of Elberta an apology.
