CUMMING, Ga. — Deputies had to wrestle a man to the ground, because he resisted arrested after attempting to cash a forged check, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff's incident report.

An employee of the Community Business Bank, 505 Peachtree Parkway, told deputies Sept. 19 a man allegedly tried to cash a forged check.

When deputies arrived, bank employees pointed to the suspect who stood by the teller line.

Deputies asked the man to walk to the manager's officer to talk. They walked together for a few steps, but once the man approached the front doors, he suddenly became belligerent.

Deputies told the man he was under arrest, but he pulled his arms away and swung at deputies in a threatening manner. Deputies grabbed his arms again and pulled them behind his back as they executed a leg sweep takedown.

After several minutes of struggle, deputies were able to handcuff Emmette Bentley, 43, and he was taken to Forsyth County Detention Center.

Bentley has been charged with forgery and obstruction.

Deputies said the check was made out to Bentley for $1,270 by Heritage Charity Auctions and Awards.
