Inmate Dies In Custody at Detention Center

The Paulding County Sheriff’s Office is reporting that an inmate died Friday at the Paulding County Detention Center.

The Paulding County Sheriff’s Office along with the Calhoun Regional Office of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) are investigating the in-custody death of Andrew Scott Pittman, 26.

In the early morning hours of Feb. 8, Pittman was found unconscious in a bathroom inside the Detention Center. Once he was located, aid was immediately rendered to Pittman, according to a release issued by the Sheriff's Office. After checking his vital signs, Pittman was unable to be resuscitated. Pittman was being held in the Paulding County Detention Center on the following charges: possession/distribution/manufacturing of controlled substances, possession of firearm by a convicted felon, possession/use of drug related objects, and probation violation.

Pittman had been incarcerated in the Paulding County Detention Center since Nov. 14, 2012 where he was awaiting trail. Since Pittman had a probation violation hold, he was not eligible to bond out of the Detention Center.

Preliminary investigations indicate that the death does not appear to be due to any altercation or act of violence, according to the release. Once the autopsy and toxicology results return from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s Crime Lab, investigators will have a better understanding of what may have caused Pittman’s untimely death.

This is my family & I find your comments offensive. You didn't know him so don't even speak like that. He is still a human being. He made bad choices, but who hasn't? I am very hurt & angry that people can talk like that knowing his family is reading it.
