Bryan Anthony Rhoden Wiki – Bryan Anthony Rhoden Biography
Bryan Anthony Rhoden is identified as the Golf course killer who killed three people on a Georgia country club golf course last week.
He was an aspiring rapper who’s had previous run-ins with law enforcement — including a shootout in a drug deal gone bad and a high-speed chase in Indiana.
Bryan Anthony Rhoden is 23 years old as of 2021.
Golf course killer
He was jailed in Atlanta in 2016 for shooting at Georgia State University, where he was a student at the time. In that incident, Rhoden shot a 19-year-old three times, and Rhoden himself was shot in the chest during an attempted drug transaction, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. Rhoden spent three days in jail, but then-Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard did not pursue charges against either of those involved.
A January 2020 case is still pending in Clayton County, south of Atlanta. In that incident, records say Rhoden punched an officer with the Atlanta Police Department’s Airport Drug Interaction Unit and elbowed a second officer. He was charged with simple battery on police and obstructing an officer and released on a $7,500 bond. That spring, Atlanta police conducting a traffic stop found $3,000 cash and 44 marijuana joints in his bag.
And later in the summer, he led police on a high-speed chase across two counties northwest of Indianapolis after passing an Indiana State trooper at more than 100 miles per hour, according to the Pharos-Tribune. He was charged with resisting law enforcement, aggressive driving, reckless driving, and reckless driving in a work zone after he hit a barrier and his vehicle came to a stop. The Indiana State Patrol said he reached speeds in excess of 150 miles per hour during the chase.
Arrest and Charges
Rhoden was arrested Thursday and charged with the shocking triple homicide at Kennesaw’s Pinetree Country Club last Saturday, as CrimeOnline previously reported. Rhoden is believed to have shot and killed Pinetree golf pro-Gene Siller when the 41-year-old father of two went to investigate the white pickup truck Rhoden had driven onto the course.
