Prior to being killed by Stephan Psillos, Fields allegedly stabbed the Deputy multiple times, including in his shoulder and head.

The Deputy was transported to a local hospital after the incident. He is expected to fully recover.

On Thursday, November 15, 2018, at approximately 8:11 PM, the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office was called to the Residence Inn on Marks Church Road in Augusta regarding a trouble with subject call. Richmond County Sheriff’s Deputy Stephan Psillos responded to the location and encountered Jack Darrel Fields Jr, 25, of El Paso, Texas, in the lobby of the hotel.

During the encounter, Deputy Psillos attempted to place handcuffs on Fields at which time Fields resisted arrest. Fields pulled a knife from his coat pocket and attacked Deputy Psillos stabbing him multiple times. Deputy Psillos fired his service weapon striking Fields.

The officer-involved shooting investigation is ongoing.

“From everything that I have seen, it was totally justifiable,” Sheriff Richard Roundtree told the Augusta Chronicle. “Again, I don’t need to make that kind of determination. My only concern is if my deputy is going to be OK, going to recover.”

In four seasons with the team from 2012 through 2015, he had 109 carries for 336 yards and a touchdown. His lone touchdown came in his sophomore seasons in 2013.

He also had three receptions for 14 yards.
