Family Questions Truth in Gwinnett Police Taser Death of George Man

STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. — A 911 caller said George Mann was acting strangely inside of a garage on July 11. Gwinnett Police showed up and after some sort of altercation, 35-year-old Mann was dead.

The case is now under GBI investigation, but Mann’s family is now speaking up because they’re concerned they did not get the full story. Mann’s family says they were initially told that Mann died of an overdose. But they claim police never told them a Taser was involved, and that they only found out when they saw the report on the news.

On July 11, 2015, the family does not deny Mann was on drugs. They said he’d had a relapse. And they agree he was acting erratically. But the family says, that 911 call was made because Mann needed medical attention. But according to the GBI, Gwinnett police instead used a taser to subdue him.

“They were informed this person was having an episode, drug related,” said attorney Scott Hoopes. “And at that point, there should have been medical professionals on site to ensure his safety.”
