The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office says it arrested a Georgia man wanted for multiple felony warrants.
The arrest happened in the early morning hours on Nov. 25 in the Deer Head Cove area on County Road 792.
Two deputies were patrolling the area while using the sheriff’s office’s substation at the Cartersville Fire Department on Highway 75. While on County Road 792, they tried to stop a vehicle traveling into Deer Head Cove.
According to the department, after activating emergency lights, the vehicle continued to travel and eventually stopped about halfway down the mountain. It says there were three occupants in the vehicle and deputies determined that one of them was providing false information.
