CHATSWORTH, Ga. (WDEF) — A Murray County jury found a man guilty of aggravated assault at a medical clinic. They sentenced Donald Bradly Holcomb, 58, to 20 years in prison and 20 years of probation.

Officials said Holcomb faces two counts of aggravated assault and one count of family violence aggravated assault.

District Attorney Bert Poston said the incident happened on October 5.

Holcomb went to a medical facility in Chatsworth with his father and stepmother, officials said.

They said he previously caused disruption at the medical center and would not comply with rules. So, staff told him not to come back. Prosecutors said staff called law enforcement when they saw Holcomb return.

They said employees would not let Holcomb enter, and he got visibly angry. Prosecutors said Holcomb got into an argument with his elderly father.

While attempting to leave, they said he hit his father and two clinic employees with the open door of his van. Officials said he caused injuries to the clinic staff.

Prosecutors said the incident was caught on surveillance cameras and a cell phone video.

District Attorney Poston said ten witnesses were called, including the victims. He said Holcomb claimed it was an accident as his defense, and that he never showed remorse for his actions.

The jury took less than an hour to determine his guilt.
