LAMAR COUNTY, Ga. -- "Please keep him in your prayers." 

That's what the Lamar County Sheriff's Office posted on their Facebook page after a deputy had to be airlifted to the hospital following a motorcycle chase and accident Sunday night around 9:50 p.m.

Officials said Deputy Bossie Davis had to be taken to Atlanta Medical Center by helicopter after he broke his ankle and collarbone in the crash. He is in stable condition and would have to undergo surgery for his injuries. His partner, Deputy Newman was not injured in the crash.
