On 07/29/2023 Deputy Phillips, Deputy Findley, and Lt. Gibson were en-route to a fight in progress at [600 BLOCK] Big Oak Ln. Dispatched advised that an adult hit a special needs juvenile and someone is bleeding. Dispatch also advised that the offender was attempting to leave in a blue Nissan passenger car. Dispatch advised deputies the offender was a male wearing a pink shirt.

Deputy Phillips was first on scene and could observe a blue Nissan passenger car leaving. Deputy Phillips told the driver to stop and observed a male, later identified as Gaspar Patino, in the rear passenger seat, wearing a pink shirt, and had blood on him. Deputy Phillips then removed that male, who had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his person, and placed him into handcuffs, which were double locked and checked for fit. Deputy Phillips then placed that male in the rear seat of the patrol car and advised him he was being detained until the incident could be investigated.

While Deputy Phillips was speaking with [VICTIM #1], Gaspar started to hit his head on the partition of Deputy Phillips’ patrol car. Deputy Phillips advised dispatch of this and told him to stop. Deputy Findley then arrived on scene to assist. He remained at Deputy Phillips’ patrol car to observe Gaspar. [VICTIM #1] stated to Deputy Phillips that Juvenile 1 is special needs due to autism. Deputy Phillips could observe Juvenile 1 being very upset about the incident.

Deputy Phillips spoke with [VICTIM #1] again and she stated it started between Gaspar and her father, [VICTIM #2]. [VICTIM #1] translated the conversation between Deputy Phillips and [VICTIM #2]. [VICTIM #2] stated that Gaspar threw Juvenile 1 into the pool and called him a “mother f*cker”. [VICTIM #2] then confronted him about this and told him to leave the kid alone and Gaspar punched him one time in the face. [VICTIM #2] stated that it knocked him down and he did it with a closed fist.

Deputy Phillips could observe a laceration on [VICTIM #2]’s right eyebrow. He denied medical treatment for his injuries. Lt. Gibson arrived on scene around this time to also assist. Deputy Phillips took pictures of [VICTIM #2]’s injuries and submitted it to evidence.com. [VICTIM #1] stated that she was also hit by Gaspar. She stated that she had her phone in her hand and knocked it out. Deputy Phillips asked [VICTIM #1] to describe the hit and she demonstrated an open hand slap.

Deputy Phillips advised [VICTIM #1] and [VICTIM #2] that Gaspar would be under arrest and taken to the Whitfield County Detention Center. Deputy Phillips then advised dispatch that Gaspar was in custody and en-route to the Detention Center. While en-route to the detention center Gaspar continued to hit his head on the partition and rear passenger doors deliberately. He became irate and started to curse Deputy Phillips, by stating “hey n*gga, motherf*cker,” and other curse words in Spanish.

Once at the Detention Center, multiple detention officers, and Lt. Gibson were present. Detention staff attempted to get Gaspar to exit the rear seat, and could observe a severe laceration to Gaspar’s forehead that was bleeding. Gaspar denied medical attention at the Detention Center and medical staff advised he needed to be transported to Hamilton Medical Center for stitches. Deputy Phillips advised dispatch of this and to notify public safety at Hamilton medical center. While en-route, Gaspar continued to curse Deputy Phillips.

Once at Hamilton Medical Center, Gaspar refused to exit the patrol vehicle and went limp.

Deputy Phillips along with public safety officers placed Gaspar back in the rear seat of the patrol car. Gaspar went limp again and would not comply with law enforcement’s commands. Gaspar hit his head on the center seat numerous times while entering the vehicle. Once law enforcement was able to place him in the rear seat, Dr. [REDACTED], came outside and stated that due to his current mental state of being intoxicated as well as the head injury he would not be able to give consent.

Upon entering the room, Deputy Phillips observed Gaspar in the floor near the corner of the bed. Staff at Hamilton Medical Center stated that he fell out of the wheel-chair and hit his head. Medical staff as well as law enforcement, assisted Gaspar into the hospital bed. Gaspar then called medical staff a b*tch and spit at them.

Gaspar then started to hit his head on the bed rails and as he did this he was attempting to remove the mask using his mouth. Deputy Phillips held his head still to keep him from continuing this self harm. Medical staff then placed pads on the bed rails to prevent him from hitting his head any more.

Deputy Phillips then spoke with Dr. [REDACTED] and he stated that he will be placing a medical hold on him due to his current condition. Deputy Phillips then advised Lt. Gibson of the situation.
