An arrest outside of a Gainesville motel room is at the crux of a civil suit against the Hall County Sheriff’s Office. Danny Bagwell, who was arrested July 21, 2012, at the Georgianna Motel on Atlanta Highway, claims the Hall County Sheriff’s Office used excessive force and denied him medical treatment, according to court documents. While outside of his motel room that day, Bagwell claims Deputy Andy Long put him under arrest due to an outstanding White County warrant, and later searched his locked room without consent.
