As is procedure, officers ran a background check to make sure they weren't handing a gun to a convicted felon; indeed they learned that McCorry had a warrant out for a probation violation, related to a hit-and-run with no insurance. So he was then arrested and taken to Gwinnett County jail.
He would be released on bond hours later. What police say they didn't know was that his baby daughter had been left outside in his car the entire time.
"He made no statements as to the fact that his daughter was left in the car, two buildings away from the Snellville Police Department," Detective Jeff Manely told a press conference.
"He was in the presence of our officers for over 40 minutes, recorded on dash cam and body cam. He made no statements that the child was present."
"We have him on video from the time he walked into this lobby, to the time we transported him to Gwinnett County Detention Center and released him to sheriff's deputies there. He was on video the entire time," he reiterated, "he never made a statement that that child was in the car."
