Jaywalker on Old Holcomb Bridge Road flees when stopped by police

Posted:

ROSWELL, Ga. – An officer who attempted to stop two people for jaywalking got more than he bargained for when one of the people took flight Oct. 5.

The officer reports that he saw two people cross Old Holcomb Bridge Road without using a crosswalk. When he pulled over to “explain the dangers” in doing this, one 17-year-old took off running toward the Concepts 21 and Wood Creek apartment buildings.

A search of nearby woodland turned up the man, who initially refused to say anything to police. He was arrested for obstruction. Once at the jail, he finally told officers his name.

He was found to be forbidden from being near the apartments and had a warrant from Henry County for trespassing.
