“I’ll stop calling for his arrest once he’s arrested,” Merritt told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Greg McMichael -- charged, along with his son Travis McMichael, with felony murder and aggravated assault -- told a Glynn police officer that Bryan had tried to block Arbery “but was unsuccessful.”
Greg McMichael told police he thought Arbery was responsible for for a series of break-ins.
Gough insisted his client had no communication with the McMichaels the day of the shooting.
“If there was a lynch mob or posse, Mr. Bryan was unaware of it,” Gough said.
Gough said Bryan passed a lie detector, administered privately at his expense.
“We’re worried about him or his family being killed,” Gough said.
