Gunfight in road leaves two Georgia cops wounded
And who was the heroic good guy in this episode of blue-on-blue violence?
Officer Jay Daily, a five-year veteran of the Duluth Police Department, exchanged multiple gunshots Friday afternoon with Fulton County Officer Paul Phillips, police said.
Daily was in custody Saturday, charged with aggravated assault, Cpl. Illana Spellman of the Gwinnett County, Georgia, police said.
"It's been confirmed that the Duluth police officer was the aggressor in this case," Spellman said.
Daily, who lives in the area, was off duty and in civilian clothing but was wearing a bulletproof vest, police said.
Yeah, that's normal.
