A Georgia man, Gaston Stone, was taken into custody after allegedly exposing two police officers to a harmful substance, leaving them experiencing various health issues. Stone, 51, entered the Smyrna Police Department with paperwork while expressing his grievances about Georgia Governor Brian Kemp. The incident, which was recorded by Stone, resulted in the officers suffering from symptoms such as extreme fatigue, chest pain, chest tightness, dizziness, and difficulty breathing, according to an arrest warrant cited by the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
Stone has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault and is currently being held without bond at the Cobb County Jail, as indicated by inmate records. The FBI Atlanta field office has confirmed its involvement in assisting Smyrna with the testing of potential evidence obtained from the papers.
This is not the first encounter with the law for Stone. In October, he pleaded guilty to terroristic threats and received a one-year probation sentence after being indicted earlier this year for threatening to blow up a building. Stone has also faced previous charges of aggravated assault.
