LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Former Jefferson County constable, David Whitlock, was back in court Friday and a judge ruled he is not allowed to be part of his security company business.
The lawyers made the agreement so he finishes his diversion program without any violations.
He was part of a start-up security business called Securus on Dixie Highway which has firearm training.
Whitlock gave up his badge and gun after surveillance video surfaced from a southwest Walmart of an off-duty Whitlock chasing a suspected shoplifter in 2011.
He was convicted of shooting the suspected thief and banned from law enforcement, and carrying a firearm.
"We don't believe he violated his terms in any way whatsoever. What we agreed to was that he would not become a law enforcement officer. He expressed interest in doing business with a security business that might do it in the future that is not currently doing business," Whitlock’s attorney, Brian Butler, said.
As part of his diversion program, Whitlock is not allowed to have a firearm through October and he can never be involved in law enforcement again, but he can be part of the security business at the end of his diversion program.
His attorney said he would like to move past all of his legal matters and return to family life.
