Gregory Lewis Towns Jr (9004)



4/11/2014: Officers responded to a domestic dispute at the home of Towns' ex-girlfriend, leading to mile-long foot-chase that ended with Towns laying on the ground, out-of-breath. Two officers began tasering Towns in an attempt to get him up, tasering him 14 times while he was handcuffed. Towns death was ruled a homicide due to the use of Tasers, and the two officers either resigned or were terminated by the police department. Towns' family plans to sue the city and police department. http://s3.documentcloud.org/documents/1281063/georgia-taser-incident-report-redacted.pdf
