SHERIFF VICTOR HILL Acts On Internal Investigation Concerning Excessive Force On Social Media Video.

The Deputy who repeatedly struck Roderick Walker is being terminated from the Clayton County Sheriff’s Office by order of Sheriff Victor Hill for excessive use of force.  This is the administrative action.  The criminal investigation of this matter will be turned over to the Clayton County District Attorney’s Office.


The Sheriff ordered a signature bond courtesy for Mr. Walker 48 hours ago.  Unfortunately, Mr. Walker has a felony probation warrant out of Fulton County for Cruelty to Children, Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon, and a Failure to Appear warrant out of Hapeville which resulted in Magistrate Court denying him a bond.  Mr. Walker’s legal counsel will have to resolve these issues to secure his release.


Mr. Walker has received medical treatment to include x-rays (no fractures detected) of his head and is being monitored at the jail hospital by a doctor.
