July 26, 2020–5:20 p.m.


A 29-year old Rome man was arrested late last week after allegedly fleeing from police.

According to Floyd County Jail records, Kerry Lamar Grier Jr. of a Highlander Trail address tried to use his 2015 Dodge Challenger to hit the officer before striking another vehicle.

Grier bailed out of the vehicle, leaving it in drive, putting others in danger of being hit.

Grier then dropped more than an ounce of marijuana and a 9mm pistol was found in his backpack.

He was later arrested on multiple charges including aggravated assault on a police officer, hit and run, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime and fleeing or attempting to elude.
