Perryman said he wanted to do something a little different for his last few days, so he wore the wig as he directed traffic last week outside the county's courthouse, WSB-TV reported. He said bystanders took pictures and enjoyed it.
“You know, that made me feel a little joyous about that being my last week,” he said.
He told the news station he doesn’t expect to miss any pay because of his resignation, but his records won’t reflect that he retired.
The Sheriff's Office declined WSB-TV's request for comment due to it being a personnel issue.
"My plan was to finish with the DeKalb County Sheriff's Office with 20 years of service, and I got robbed from that," Perryman said.
WSB-TV filed an open records request for Perryman's internal file.
