Man indicted, accused of dragging dog behind truck causing serious injuries

A metro Atlanta man has been indicted for aggravated cruelty to animals and aggravated assault after dragging his dog behind his truck and pointing a handgun at a witness, authorities said.

>> Read more trending news 

The incident happened in early February.

Emory Junior Samples, 71, was arrested after witnesses reported seeing a dog being pulled behind an old Ford truck on a road in Forsyth County.

Witnesses remembered the truck’s license plate numbers and told the sheriff’s office, and deputies soon found the suspected vehicle. There was blood in the truck bed, according to reports.

Deputies found the dog, named Loki, in nearby woods and he required immediate medical attention.

Court records describe Samples as “maliciously” causing physical harm to his dog and “seriously disfiguring” the animal’s body by dragging the dog behind his truck.

Samples also pointed a handgun at Steve Hafelle, one of the witnesses, the sheriff’s office confirmed.

A 2-year-old girl drowned Saturday after she was pulled from a tidal pool on St. Simons Island Beach.

The girl, identified in a Glynn County Police report as Dorisa Aubria Mckiver-David, was with her mother in the tidal pool to the right of the main boardwalk at East Beach beach access.

The girl's mother, Nazzikka David, said she and Dorisa were in the water and she was watching Dorisa do the "Moana dance," when Dorisa fell face first in the water, the police report said.

David said she tried to grab Dorisa, but did not realize the water was that deep. David said Dorisa kept coming up above the water trying to catch her breath.

David told police that she kept hitting Dorisa on the back trying to get the water out.

On the way to the emergency room, Dorisa was conscious and breathing, but died at the hospital, David told police.

Homeowner takes quick action when police chase comes into neighborhood

Young children were riding their bikes on a neighborhood street when a high-speed chase came flying past them. Now, a little boy's father is calling him a hero.

Ten-year-old Josiah Coryell captured the chase with his cellphone while also looking out for his sister.

"So I told my sister to stay on the side of the road, and she listened,” Josiah Coryell said.

But he wasn't the only one in the family in the role of protector Monday afternoon. 

His dad, Jonathan Coryell, also stepped up. The man said he typically wouldn't have gotten involved, but these suspects put his kids in danger.

"I mean, my kids were in my house less than 10 feet away,” Jonathan Coryell said. "You don't really think in a moment like that."

Jonathan Coryell came home to find the police search underway.

He checked on his neighbor who quickly realized that his backdoor was open. 

"That's when he wanted to go get his gun. I said 'dude, he could literally be in there right now,” Jonathan Coryell said.

Atlanta Police Department told Channel 2 Action News the suspect was one of two men who sledge-hammered their way into a Metro PCS store on Oak Street and stole 19 phones early Monday morning. 

But police tracked a phone and tailed the suspects until they bailed out in Coryell’s neighborhood. 

Coryell said he was armed and did what he could to get the suspect to stop. Police were everywhere.

"That was one of the reasons I fired. I don't want to shoot somebody, first of all. So, I shot into the ground, and I shot the second time knowing that police are going to hear this, and sure enough, that's when they all came to that area," Coryell said.

Both suspects were ultimately caught, and now a community is slowly getting back to normal.

"The way we handled it, no we wouldn't do anything differently. No," Jonathan Coryell said.

Investigators are working to confirm the suspects' identities and determine if there were any others involved in these crimes.

Eugene Spann, 67, of Atlanta, was declared dead after being pulled from the Gulf of Mexico on Saturday morning, authorities said.

The body of Tony Orlando Jackson, 21, of Cartersville, was found Sunday afternoon about two hours after he was caught by a large wave, according to police.

Police and emergency workers took over life support efforts from bystanders when they found Spann unresponsive on the beach behind a motel short after 11 a.m. He was taken to an emergency room on the beach, where he was pronounced dead.

A search effort involving several agencies eventually found Jackson’s body. Police originally responded to a call about a swimmer in distress about 2:30 p.m.

Police said surf flags were at the red “high hazard” level when Jackson drowned. That was up from the yellow “medium hazard” designation at the time of Spann’s death.
