According to a Gordon County Sheriff’s Office incident report, On April 11th, 2023, at approximately 2:00 AM, Deputy Gallman was in the area of Ryo Mountain Road in Fairmount in reference to a physical altercation that had occurred between Cliffton Clamon Hill, 55, of Fairmount, and his daughter. The Gordon County Sheriff’s Office had previous knowledge that Cliffton was under the influence of alcohol and drugs. Gordon County Deputies attempted to make contact with Cliffton. According to the report, “When the Gordon County Deputies approached Cliffton, who had just exited his vehicle, he ignored verbal commands and attempted to flee on foot. Gordon County Deputies then deployed tasers striking Cliffton with taser prongs in an effort to gain compliance. He then fell to the roadway and was taken into custody. No field sobriety tests were given due to Cliffton being very combative and uncooperative. He was unsteady on his feet, his eyes were glassy and bloodshot, and he had a very heavy odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his breath. Cliffton was asked about giving a sample of his blood to determine if he was under the influence of alcohol and drugs, and he stated he would not give any blood.” During the transport, Cliffton was very verbal and vulgar towards Deputy Gallman and made vulgar, disrespectful comments about the Gordon County Sheriff’s Office. At one time, Deputy Gallman was traveling at 60 mph in a 55 mph zone, and Cliffton made a comment about the deputy traveling too fast. Cliffton stated he didn’t want to get hurt due to some dumb SOB driving. He then made several comments stating he was going to sue all the deputies of the Gordon County Sheriff’s Office individually. Cliffton was very combative and uncooperative with the Jail Staff refusing personal information and refusing to change into jail clothes as he was being instructed. According to Gordon County Jail records, Cliffton was charged with arson, battery, DUI, possession of marijuana, reckless conduct, felony terroristic threats and acts x2, and willful obstruction of law enforcement officers.
