Georgia Deputy Stabbed Serving Court Papers on Mental Patient

March 22, 2016  | 

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is investigating after an Effingham County Sheriff's Deputy was stabbed while serving a court order Friday afternoon.

It happened around 1:30 p.m. at a home off Highway 21, north of Springfield. Sergeant Danny Harrington was one of the four deputies serving a court order. They were there to pick up 23-year-old Franklin Johnson under a 10-13 court order, which requires the transport of a mental patient to the hospital.

"Apparently, when the officers got here he came out with a knife, starting cutting the officers and a struggle ensued," ECSO Sheriff Jimmy McDuffie said.

Johnson stabbed Sergeant Harrington in the neck and injured part of his head and ear. During the altercation, one of the deputy's guns went off, but no one was shot.

Sgt. Harrington remains in the hospital, but is in stable condition, WTOC TV reports.
