FITZGERALD, GA (WALB) -

Bob Garner was denied bond during a hearing Monday afternoon.

The former Ben Hill County deputy, accused of shooting his wife twice behind the Fitzgerald Walmart, is being held in the Coffee County jail in Douglas.

Pam and Bob Garner married in 1995, but have been separated for three years. "He needs a mental hospital or something.  He needs treatment. He don't need to be out on the street. He worked with law enforcement. He knows the does and don'ts," said the victim, Pam Garner.

   Garner faces numerous charges, including five counts of aggravated assault.

69-year-old Bob Garner faces:

  • Five counts of aggravated assault
  • Two counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony
  • One count of criminal damage to property

 

Garner worked as a Ben Hill County deputy from June 1983 to April 2006 when he retired.

An incident report from February 21st shows Pam Garner alerted deputies about him making suicidal threats. The report says when deputies arrived Mr. Garner was armed.

After a short standoff, he was taken to Phoebe Putney hospital for evaluation and released three days later.

No criminal charges were filed in that incident.  Fitzgerald Police say the investigation is ongoing.
