Individual Arrested by Sheriff Following Brief Foot Chase in Northwest Georgia

A suspect with a felony warrant – attempted to outrun Chattooga County Sheriff Mark Schrader on Wednesday afternoon but he was subsequently apprehended after a brief foot chase.   Sheriff Schrader said that Robert Earl Green was wanted, after a warrant was issued for failure to appear in court. 

The sheriff spotted Green driving on Highway 157 at Cloudland, and then attempted to pull him over – but, Green accelerated and refused to stop.   He turned left onto Highway 48, and then that chase continued down the mountain and into the Menlo City limits.   Green turned on 7th Avenue then on Edison Street – then to Polk Street – where he pulled into an empty driveway – and he then jumped out of his vehicle, running into the nearby woods. 

Sheriff Schrader and also a sheriff’s deputy pursued Green on foot – and managed to apprehend him a short distance from where he’d left his car – and Green was booked into the Chattooga County Jail

He’ll now be facing fleeing, and attempting to elude charges, on top of the felony warrant for failure to appear.
