Lieutenant Robert Guthrie, who became a viral YouTube sensation for upholding his oath and protecting the constitution during an encounter several years ago passed away this last weekend.
Lieutenant Guthrie of the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office in Southern Georgia suffered a stroke as a result of his long-term battle with high blood pressure.
You should watch the original youtube video to get an idea of the greatness of this officer (Then SSgt Guthrie appears at about the 3 minute mark).
An amazing memorial to the officer can be view at the PINAC (Photography is Not a Crime) website:
