A Danielsville man was arrested recently after he allegedly violated a temporary protection order and then resisted arrest.
Thomas Jerry Haley, 61, 97 Grady Lane, was charged with obstruction and two counts of violation of a Family Violence order.
According to the incident report, a man reported that Haley came to his place of business and started “hassling him” about a civil matter despite him having a TPO against Haley. When officer Gary Floyd later stopped Haley on Grady Lane about the matter, Haley allegedly became belligerent with him and began to use foul language when asked to submit to a sobriety test.
When told he was under arrest, he reportedly backed up against his vehicle so Floyd could not get to his hands and then jerked away from him twice before he could get him handcuffed. On the way to jail, Haley reportedly continued to use foul language and told Floyd “he knew people and would have (his) job.” While being taken out of the patrol car Haley reportedly stated in front of Floyd and detention officers that he would “shoot a pig,” allegedly referring to law enforcement.
Others arrested by local law enforcement agencies recently included:

Prather fled the scene of a traffic stop in late May after leading officer Joshua Smith on a chase along Garnett Ward Road and Thomas Drive. Two passengers in the vehicle at the time were arrested on drug charges. One of them, Kristen Danielle Jones, 22, 300 Logmont Trace, Bogart, was found with Prather and arrested again because being in contact with Prather was a violation of her bond.
