Georgia prosecutor asks court to revoke bond for former…

ATLANTA, Aug 5 – A Georgia prosecutor asked a Fulton County Superior Court judge to revoke the bond for the former Atlanta policeman charged with murder in the shooting of Rayshard Brooks, saying in court papers the officer took an out-of-state vacation.

Brooks’ shooting death in the parking lot of a south Atlanta Wendy’s restaurant touched off days of protests including the burning of the restaurant.

District Attorney Paul Howard asked the court late Tuesday to send former officer Garrett Rolfe, 27, back to jail for violating the terms of his bond which include a 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew and an order that he stay within the court’s jurisdiction, court papers say.

Rolfe’s attorney, Noah Pines, could not immediately be reached for comment Wednesday.

No date has been set for a hearing on the prosecutor’s motion to revoke bail.
