A Kingsland police officer was arrested and charged with one count of voluntary manslaughter and one count of violation of oath of office. 

Kingsland police officer Zechariah Presley turned himself into the Camden County Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday, after arrest warrants were obtained by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. 

The arrest comes after the June 21 incident where Presley followed a vehicle driven by Tony Green. The vehicle stopped and as Green fled on foot from the vehicle, Presley pursued him eventually making physical contact with Green.

Green again fled from Presley at which time Presley fired multiple shots resulting in Green’s death. The investigation is still active and ongoing.
