Deputy involved in police raid of home that injured Baby Bou Bou found not guilty in trial

Posted: Updated:

GEORGIA (WKOW) -- A jury found a former sheriff's deputy in Habersham County, Georgia not guilty of providing false information to get a search warrant.

When serving the "no-knock" warrant last year, a deputy tossed a flash bang grenade that went into the playpen of a child nicknamed Baby Bou Bou.

Bounkham Phonesavanh and his family were visiting at the home in Georgia.

During the trial of 29-year-old deputy Nikki Autry, the judge who authorized the warrant said he wouldn't have done it if he was given inaccurate information.
