A former Atlanta police officer was found guilty of kicking in his ex-fiancee's door.

A spokesperson with the Henry County District Attorney's Office said 30-year-old Phillip Barresi was on trial in Henry County after he was accused of "storming into his ex-fiancee's Locust Grove home" in November 2016.

Witnesses say Barresi was wearing his Atlanta police uniform and had his hand on his service pistol, according to a spokesperson with the district attorney's office. 

He was found guilty of criminal trespass and sentenced to 12 months in jail with 90 to serve. He'll also have to pay a $500 fine and have no contact with the victim or witnesses, according to the spokesperson.

He was found not guilty of home invasion and criminal damage to property.
