North Georgia Deputies Arrest Alabama Man

Chattooga County Sheriff’s Office Deputies arrested a man – after a traffic stop – who had an outstanding warrant in Alabama. 

According to a report from the Georgia Sheriff’s Office two deputies were on patrol on Highway 27 in the Trion area – near Scenic Hill Road – when they clocked a vehicle doing 71 in a 55 mile per hour speed zone. 

After performing a traffic stop, the deputies discovered that the person’s driver’s license had been suspended in January of this year, for failure to appear in court. 

Deputies arrested James Scott Edwards – and – while transporting him to the Chattooga County Jail – dispatch informed the deputies that Alabama authorities wanted to place a hold on Edwards, due to the fact that there was a warrant for his arrest to face charges of the Violation of a Domestic Violence Protection Order. 

Edwards was charged with Speeding, Driving with either a Suspended or Revoked license, and being a Fugitive from Justice – and was booked into the Chattooga County Jail at that time.
