Fired Gwinnett cops turn themselves in to police

Two former Gwinnett County police officers charged with punching and kicking a motorist after a traffic stop have turned themselves in to authorities.

Sgt. Michael Bongiovanni and Master Officer Robert McDonald turned themselves into the Gwinnett County jail Thursday, but have since bonded out of jail. The officers were charged Wednesday with misdemeanor battery and violating their oath of office, a felony which carries a minimum sentence of one year in prison. Bond was set at $15,000 apiece.

Gwinnett County District Attorney Danny Porter hinted that more charges could follow.

“There’s a lot more going on in Bongiovanni’s case,” Porter said.
