Richmond Co. officers return to work following tasing death

Posted: Updated:

A Richmond County family wants answers.

Three deputies are back on the job after more than a week on administrative leave following a man's death.

The deputies tased George Harvey four times as they tried to subdue him outside an Augusta convenience store last Saturday.

He went into cardiac arrest and died a couple of hours later at a hospital.

The GBI is still investigating, but the officers were cleared to return to work.
