A 30-year-old inmate who was being held in the Floyd County Jail for felony drug charges has died, and an autopsy will be performed by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI).
Bradley Clifford Wimpy, who was arrested and incarcerated on June 25, of this year, apparently suffered a medical emergency in his cell, where he was the only occupant, shortly after midnight on June 28th.
Lifesaving efforts were attempted by jail staff, paramedics and fire department personnel, and the inmate was transported to Redmond Hospital’s Emergency Room, where he was pronounced dead by hospital medical personnel shortly after 1 a.m. this morning.
While there was no indication or evidence of wrong doing, the GBI was notified and the County Coroner’s Office and GBI will determine the cause of the man’s death.
Bradley Clifford Wimpy, 30 of Rome, was arrested this week after reports said he was found to be in possession of a spoon of meth and a small amount of crack cocaine at the Circle K on Martha Berry Blvd.
Wimpy is charged with possession of meth, possession of cocaine and possession and use of drug related objects.
