On Friday, May 13, 2016, Dodge County Sheriff’s Deputy William Gordon called for assistance at the Dodge County High School. Dodge County Sheriff’s Deputy Clint English arrived to find deputy Gordon on the floor of one of the school’s hallways.
Across the hall from deputy Gordon was the student he had been attempting to subdue.
The 16 year old male student had allegedly assaulted deputy Gordon, during which deputy Gordon sustained a broken leg. Deputy English, Dodge County Sheriff’s Deputy Jermayne Hamilton and Dodge County Criminal Investigations Department Officer (CID) Glen Conley placed the student into custody with him allegedly resisting arrest and shouting threats to all officers with extremely strong language.
To gain control of the student, deputy Hamilton and officer Conley took him to the ground, and in doing so, both deputies sustained minor injuries to their arms.
Deputy Gordon was taken to Fairview Park Hospital in Dublin and was later released, but is pending surgery. Deputy Hamilton and officer Conley did not sustain debilitating injuries and remain on duty.
The case has been turned over to the Georgia Department of Juvenile Justice.
