An Augusta man fleeing police today wound up with a face full of pepper spray and a head injury, according to an incident report.

Marion Dwayne Terry led Deputy Julio Concepcion on a short car chase around 4 a.m., then jumped out of his 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass at the intersection of Crawford Avenue and Franklin Lane, the Richmond County Sheriff's Office incident report said.

As he ran away, Terry fell down then elbowed Concepcion in the eye as the officer tried to detain him, the report said. Concepcion, who suffered a black eye, dropped his police radio and lost his baton during a three-minute effort to detain him, the report said.

Sprayed twice with pepper spray and struck several times with the baton, Terry was taken to Medical College of Georgia with a head injury, according to the report.

Terry told deputies he ran because his license was suspended.

Running from police should

Running from police should not merit a death sentence EMS6465, unless others lives are in danger.

The use of deadly force is the harest thing for an officer to deal with and I can tell by your post you have never taken a life yourself or been in a situation like this. Hence the attitude.

When you all say stupid things like that it helps support the folks who blame the police first no matter what they do in situations like this.

Grow up.

Brad

reason # 467 why Tasers

reason # 467 why Tasers should be standard issue. LEO's should NOT be made to fight when there are non-lethal alternatives out there. pepper spray sucks and doesn't work on a large majority of people. what if this dirt bag would have got a hold of the deputies gun? "potential" law suits do nothing but put lives at risk and that is what has kept so many agencies from getting them. when in fact out of all of the common weapons carried by LE, Tasers are the easiest to track against abuse.

Brad, if law enforcement
Unpublished

Brad, if law enforcement babies these people like your Liberal butt would so happily like for them to do they'll just get worse. No, they don't need to use deadly force, but hey ... if they happen to die in the process, so be it. They shouldn't have done what they did.

It's great that the officer

It's great that the officer was able to subdue him by only striking him with the baton, but no one would have blamed him for shooting the guy if he's alone in a fist fight with him at 4 AM.

@mary.dits: who really cares

@mary.dits: who really cares if they "fall" or get what they deserve? i say if you run and get caught, you get some bruises for it. i have no problem with that at all.
