Deputy fires at man during incident at Georgia RV park; 3 arrested

Three men were arrested Friday after an incident at an RV park in Gordon County that began with a truck crashing into beer cases in Calhoun, authorities said.

The events began when a man drove his pickup into stacks of beer that were delivered to a Calhoun gas station, northwestgeorgianews.com reported. He then got out of the truck and began waving a gun. 

The man was thought to have fled to Gordon County, and the sheriff's office and Georgia State Patrol were called into the search.

Around 11 a.m., deputies began searching the RV camp for the man. One of the deputies was confronted by another man who "produced a large-caliber handgun," according to the sheriff's office.

"The deputy was shouting for this man to drop the weapon when he refused to do so and instead pointed the weapon at the deputy," the sheriff's office said.
