Deputy Sheriff Michael Butler was killed in a vehicle crash while responding to a domestic violence call at approximately 8:25 pm.

He was responding to the call with his emergency equipment activated when a tractor trailer crossed the center line as it attempted to turn right onto Cat Creek Road from Norman Hall Road. Deputy Butler was unable to avoid a collision and struck the trailer portion of the truck. The driver of the tractor trailer pulled Deputy Butler from the burning patrol car.

He was transported to South Georgia Medical Center where he succumbed to his injuries.

Deputy Butler, or Chris as I knew him, was the best of the best. A loving father, a dedicated husband, and a dear friend to Law Enforcement for many years before he became a Deputy.
