Man killed by slap at children's birthday party
A Georgia dad died after he was slapped by a man at a child's birthday party, police said.
It happened in the backyard of a Gwinnett County home early Sunday morning. About 70 people attended the birthday party and the adults stayed around to drink.
According to police, Adrian Herrera told officers he open-hand slapped Tomas Rodriquez in the face after he grabbed his shoulder and insulted him. Herrera said Rodriguez had been harassing him throughout the day.
Herrera said he finally ended up hitting Rodriguez at around 3 a.m. That's when Rodriguez, a father of three, collapsed and stopped breathing.
Herrera remains in the Gwinnett County jail without bond on voluntary manslaughter. His next court appearance is set for December 14.
