The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has made a third arrest in its investigation into the Ahmaud Arbery case.
On May 21, 2020, the GBI arrested William “Roddie” Bryan Jr., age 50, on charges of Felony Murder & Criminal Attempt to Commit False Imprisonment.
These charges stem from the February 23, 2020 incident that resulted in the death of Ahmaud Arbery. Bryan is the man behind the now-viral leaked video footage which captured the final moments leading up to Arbery’s death.
He has been booked into the Glynn County Jail and, prior to any announcement of arrest, had retained attorney and former Glynn County Public Defender Kevin Gough.
On Wednesday, all 14 members of the Georgia Congressional delegation called on the Department of Justice to take over the case. No official action has been taken on that request and currently, the Department of Justice is only looking into the handling of the Arbery case by the Brunswick Judicial Circuit.
