Johns Creek police have determined that no crime was committed during a verbal confrontation between City Manager John Kachmar and Gerald John Bush following an Oct. 7 City Council meeting.

According to a news statement released by the city, investigators interviewed 11 people, but none could corroborate allegations by Bush, a Johns Creek resident, that Kachmar poked him in the chest during a heated exchange in the parking lot of City Hall after the meeting.

Police interviewed Bush, his wife, Cynthia, Kachmar, residents who attended the meeting, City Council members, city staff, and police officers who went to Bush’s house to take his report.

Johns Creek detectives briefed the Fulton County Solicitor’s Office on the findings of the investigation, a copy of which is available at or at Police Headquarters, 11445 Johns Creek Parkway, Johns Creek. (Disclaimer: The investigation findings and police report report contain offensive language.)
