FAIRBURN, Ga. -- A 49-year-old man was arrested on several charges after starting a police chase and then throwing an empty liquor bottle at a pursuing officer.
It began at around 1 a.m. Wednesday, while a police officer patrolled the warehouses on Oakley Industrial Boulevard in Fairburn, an area that recently experienced a theft.
The officer saw two cars parked at one of the warehouses. The cars drove away as the officer approached, according to Fairburn Police Sgt. Anthony Bazydlo.
When the officer tried to pull over the cars, they sped away. The officer followed the cars from Fairburn to Interstate 85, then to I-285. The chase ended on Riverdale Road in Clayton County, when a driver and passenger jumped out of one of the cars and tried to run.
