Man Shot and Killed While Trying to Drown Georgia Trooper

June 27, 2016  | 

Police say a Georgia State Patrol trooper shot and killed a man Saturday after he allegedly tried to drown another trooper Saturday night in Hall County.

A spokesperson with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation told CBS46 Georgia State Patrol troopers started chasing a vehicle after its driver wouldn't stop at a checkpoint in Flowery Branch.

The spokesperson said that after a chase, troopers eventually boxed the suspect in, resulting in a crash. Police say the driver and a passenger left the vehicle and started running away after the crash.

One of the troopers eventually caught the driver at a creek, which is when police say the driver tried to "submerge him underwater," after a fight. Two additional troopers arrived and one of the troopers shot and killed the driver after a Taser had no impact, according to the spokesperson.

The driver who was killed was identified by police as 36-year-old Rodrigo Guardiola from Gainesville. All three troopers were treated for injuries at a hospital and eventually released, according to police.

Good job officers. There was no reason for the suspect to come out of the water alive. Good use of deadly force. Good guys go home, thug goes to morgue.
