Traffic Stops Can Be Fatal

Chaos broke out during a very routine traffic stop in Atlanta, Georgia.  Typically, Deputy Sheriffs work in and around the jail and a selected few are hired as deputies in the courtrooms.  Nevertheless, one deputy in Atlanta had a very unpleasant traffic stop recently.  He is "doing much better" but still may lose his left eye after he was shot in the face during a routine traffic stop just south of authorities by someone who was already a convicted felon.

In Harris County, Georgia, the Sheriff indicated yesterday that Deputy Jamie White's condition was improving after he was shot by the driver that he pulled over.  He was shot in the face by a 24 year old individual who was later arrested on Saturday night all the way over in Alabama.  

Sheriff Joley said the defendant will have a hearing in court and will likely be extradicted back to Harris County for formal indictment and prosecution in the near future.  Defendant Joe Lee Garcia faces charges of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony (here in Texas it would be charged as Aggravated assault with a Deadly Weapon), and fleeing or attempting to elude.

Needless to say, Mr. Garcia has some serious felony charges that are coming down the line towards him.  The very first thing that his family needs to do is to get a lawyer or a team of attorneys to represent him.
