Geneva Teen Indicted in Death of Florida Deputy

A Geneva County grand jury has indicted an 18-year-old in the death of a Northwest Florida law enforcement officer.

On August 23rd, Holmes County Reserve Deputy Joe Galloway died after overturning his patrol car on a remote, dirt road along the Holmes-Geneva county line.

Galloway was reportedly in pursuit of a vehicle driven by Geneva resident Cody Edwards.

Eyewitnesses said Edwards was driving recklessly and speeding moments before Galloway crashed his car.

Edwards is charged with manslaughter.

He remains free under a $50,000 bond.

His next court date is for arraignment in December at the Geneva County Courthouse.

    I disagree, the teen didnot hit the officer, it was the officers decision to chase the car. If he was not familiar with the road he caused the accident. The teen should be charged with evading arrest. Fleeing from the police, but it was still the officers decision how fast he was driving.
