I’m trying to understand this case and make sure that I’ve gotten it right before I join with the pitchfork carrying crowd. Everything online is either filled with vitriol or otherwise biased. Here is the GA law on citizen’s arrest.
Further, the law is clear that if the two men were privileged to make an arrest, and Arbury fought back and tried to grab their guns, it would be an act of self defense for the men to shoot him.
So, what exactly happened here? There was a video that showed him stopping at a construction site for several minutes, a man called 911 and Arbury is seen running out.
My question: What exactly were these two men told that gave them reason to start chasing Arbury? How long after Arbury exited the construction site did the men catch up with him?
