Summary
Jerome Hart was in Waycross and on his way back to Atlanta. A Ware County deputy pulled him over for an unlit tag light around 10 p.m. Hart allegedly fled on foot. The deputy reportedly lost track of Hart and then he saw him run through several dark backyards near Jamestown Road. The officer said he climbed a fence and saw Hart in the bottom of a homeowner's pool. Hart's mother said he was a strong swimmer and found the drowning death unlikely.
