The Winder Police Department, the City of Winder and Ofc. Chris Stapleton have been named as defendants in a lawsuit filed last week in Barrow County Superior Court.
The lawsuit, filed on behalf of Jackson County resident Ken Parks, stems from an April 2009 vehicle accident in Barrow County.
According to court documents filed Aug. 24, Ofc. Stapleton was southbound on Loganville Highway near Township Road when he made a left hand u-turn in front of Parks’ vehicle which resulted in a collision.
