GBI completes report on Warren County incident

Ocmulgee Judicial Circuit District Attorney Fredric D. Bright has received the Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s investigative report of the Oct. 14 postgame incident involving the Warren County and Hancock Central football teams and said the “entire investigation” will be presented to the Hancock County grand jury.

In a release issued today, Bright said the investigation, which resulted in a 12-volume investigative report, will be presented in the next few weeks. He said there were 135 interviews in the case, with coaches, players and fans of both teams interviewed regarding the postgame fight that resulted in Warren County head coach David Daniel sustaining injuries to his face. Hancock County Sheriff Tomlyn Primus requested assistance from the GBI less than a week after the incident.

Daniel was reportedly struck in the face by at least one helmet after his team's 21-2 win. Warren County Schools Superintendent Carole Jean Carey mostly wants to know the identity – or the identities – of the attacker(s).

Because the incident occurred in Hancock County, jurisdiction and venue lies there under law, Bright said in the release. The grand jury will decide if anyone will be charged with a particular crime.

"I guess that’s just the process," Carey said. "I guess we’ll just find out what they have to say. I know these things take time."

It might be difficult to

It might be difficult to empanel a grand jury in Hancock County who is not involved with one of the perpetrators.

That's kinda "conflickty" no?

That's kinda "conflickty" no? I kidnap you and assault you on my property so I get to decide if charges will be filed against me?

Not exactly the case here but disturbingly similiar conflict.

Approximately $6,145,123.98

Approximately $6,145,123.98 later, the result will be the helmet was the only one at fault, and it fled back to China to evade prosecution.

I don't guess it would be right to openly criticize the Hancock County Grand Jury before they hear the report, but it's difficult to have confidence in the county's legal system.
