WellStar Cobb Hospital is standing behind Jerry Evans, a security guard, who is charged with involuntary manslaughter and reckless conduct after a confrontation with the patient left him dead.
Charges were brought against Evans after a three-month investigation. He was released from jail Monday morning on a $20,000 bond.
Evans claimed that William West, the patient, was intoxicated and became unruly at which time Evans pushed him to get him off of him. West then fell backward hitting his head, dying instantly.
