DeKalb County police officer honored with 'Badge of Bravery'

A DeKalb County police officer has been honored for his courage.

Officer Jonathan Lewis was awarded with the Congressional Badge of Bravery on Thursday. Fourth District Congressman Hank Johnson, whose district includes DeKalb County, presented Lewis with the award.

Lewis was one of five police officers who stopped a home invasion back in 2014. Two officers were shot during the attempted home invasion.

Lewis helped arrest one suspect and also provided emergency care for one of his wounded colleagues.

The other officers will be honored by representative from their districts.
