ATLANTIC BEACH — A former police chief in northeast Florida has received five years’ probation after pleading guilty to possessing illegal steroids and evidence tampering.

A Duval County judge also ordered 50-year-old former Atlantic Beach Police Chief Michael Classey to undergo random drug tests.

Classey resigned last September after his house was raided by state investigators, who found steroids and other pills. He says his behavior was fueled by alcoholism.

Authorities say they believe the drugs were for Classey’s personal use, not for sale, which kept the former chief out of prison.

The Florida Times-Union reports that Classey is in treatment for alcoholism and will have to complete five Alcoholics Anonymous classes a week during his probation.
