Deputy Bryan Bowman from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office was on patrol on July 15 when he saw “this dude” walking in the middle of the road. Seeing “multiple traffic infractions occurring,” Bowman decided to try to move the large turtle off the road.READ MORE: Family of Gwinnett Co. woman killed in accidental shooting seeks justice
