SummaryA Bartow County grand jury returned a “no billâ€ù on the proposed indictment against Nancy Beth Gatny. Euharlee police said 17-year-old Christopher Roupe pointed a gun at one of their officers on Feb. 14, when officers knocked on the door of the family’s home to serve a probation warrant for Roupe’s father. Family members, however, said the teen was holding a Nintendo Wii controller. The District Attorney’s Office for the Cherokee Judicial Circuit presented a proposed indictment charging Gatny with involuntary manslaughter and reckless conduct. However, the grand jury did not find sufficient evidence for the case to proceed to trial. “Because the Grand Jury has determined that the actions of Officer Gatny did not rise to the level of a criminal offense, this concludes the involvement of the District Attorney’s Office in this matter,â€ù District Attorney Rosemary Greene said.
