The aggravated assault warrant for cop-dragging suspect Kaylon Smith gives a play-by play on the Richmond County deputy’s interaction with the suspect.
Here it is: “A traffic stop was conducted on the vehicle in which said accused was the driver, a white 2012 Hyundai Equus. …The K9 unit was working the scene and K9 Parter Jack alerted to the odor of narcotics at the driver’s side door. At which time, Deputy (Keith) Inman attempted to remove said accused from the vehicle, said accused began to drive off rapidly from the incident location with Deputy Inman caught on the driver side open door.
“The vehicle traveled through the parking lot where it proceeded to go in between 2 poles with Deputy Inman attached to the side of the vehicle. Deputy Inman’s body struck the poles and was dislodged from the vehicle. Said accused then fled the scene.
“Said offense occurred at the Raceway Gas Station at 3481 Wrightsboro Road in Augusta, Richmond County, Georgia.
“The victim was transported to Doctors Hospital and is in stable but critical condition.”
The actual charge against Smith is AGGRAVATED ASSAULT UPON A POLICE OFFICER. He is being held at the Richmond County Jail without bond. He has a long history of drug arrests and spent time in prison after a felony arrest as a teenager.
Deputy Inman is a hero cop who has worked at the sheriff’s office for four years and was given a commendation in 2017 for helping to save a man’s life after he stopped breathing.
