Officer’s Narrative:
[Please note: The following is a direct transcription from the officer’s narrative report. We do not fix any spelling or grammatical errors. Any changes made by our staff are placed inside brackets. Some errors may exist.]

On 09AUG2022 I was dispatched to [REDACTED BY AGENCY] in reference to a complaint from [VICTIM #1] that as she was pulling out of her driveway to take her daughter, [REDACTED BY AGENCY] to her first day of school a man pointed a gun at them and demanded she put his jeep back in his yard. While I was in route dispatch advised that [VICTIM #1] continued driving to the school and would return to her address after dropping [REDACTED BY AGENCY] off.

As I approached the address I observed an unarmed white male, later identified as Gordon Spurlock, with no shirt or shoes on and wearing black pants pacing in the roadway. As I exited my patrol vehicle and made contact with Gordon who stated he was a detective and accused [VICTIM #1] of stealing his assigned vehicle. When I asked him about having a weapon he stated that he had a gun in the house but insisted that during the incident he was holding a stick As I inquired further he became aggravated and started walking back towards his residence at [50 BLOCK] Deerwood Way.

As he walked down the driveway I was able to get his attention and have him walk back to my vehicle so I could continue my investigation. As we approached my vehicle Sgt. Ferguson arrived on scene to assist. Due to Gordon’s sporadic behavior throughout our interaction he was placed in double-locked handcuffs and in the back seat of my patrol vehicle so I could continue my investigation.

I then spoke with [WITNESS #1] who lives at [REDACTED BY AGENCY] which shares the same driveway as Gordon, who stated that he did not witness the incident but he did here Gordon yelling in the roadway. He advised that before I arrived he observed [WITNESS #1] walk back into his residence carrying what appeared to be a short stick. He said that when he came back out and walked to the road he no longer had the stick in his possession. [WITNESS #1] advised that Gordon was his relative and that he suffers from [REDACTED BY AGENCY] and this behavior was common place for him. While speaking to [WITNESS #1] he made numerous statements that made me believe that he was genuinely concerned for the safety of himself as well as his neighbors.

When I made contact with [VICTIM #1] she stated that she and [REDACTED BY AGENCY] were in her red 2018 Jeep Wrangler [REDACTED BY AGENCY] attempting to pull out of the driveway when they were approached by Gordon who pointed a firearm at them and demanded they return his jeep. She stated that she was terrified for the safety of her and her daughter so she took a left out her driveway and drove to drop [REDACTED BY AGENCY] off at [REDACTED BY AGENCY]. She stated that she has no clue what Gordon meant by his statements because she is the owner of the jeep she was driving but said she was absolutely terrified when Gordon pointed the weapon at her.

After speaking with [VICTIM #1] I walked back Gordon’s residence where I made contact with his mother, [REDACTED]. [REDACTED] advised that she did not witness the incident and that she hadn’t spoken Gordon yet this morning. When I inquired about him owning a firearm she said he didn’t have one but there was a firearm in the home that belonged to her deceased husband. She then escorted me into the home to locate the firearm and as soon as she opened the door, I immediately saw a [REDACTED BY AGENCY] sawed off rifle sitting on top of the dryer.

[REDACTED] advised that she has never known that rifle to be there and gave me permission to photograph and take possession of it. I took photographs of the weapon, secured it in my vehicle, completed a Glynn County receipt for property and provided [REDACTED] with a copy. She was advised that Gordon was being arrested for Aggravated Assault and I spoke to her about the importance of coming to court to speak with the judge in order to get Gordon the help he obviously needs.

I returned to my patrol vehicle and advised Gordon he was being placed under arrest for 2 counts of Aggravated Assault. He was placed in a seatbelt, transported to CDC, and turned over to the jail staff without incident. The photographs, property receipt, and my Axon body worn camera footage were all uploaded to evidence.com under this case number.

The rifle was tagged and placed in a Glynn County Police Department evidence locker with a property receipt to be held for court. The victim was also provided a Victim’s bill of rights and explained the court process as well as remedies available to victims in this county.
