DECATUR, Ga. – Authorities say a Georgia man has been arrested after he fired at gun at a suburban Atlanta police officer during a traffic stop.
DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Cynthia Williams says in a news release that authorities arrested 24-year-old Tamarcus Gresham of Lithonia on an aggravated assault charge in connection with Wednesday’s incident.
Officials say an officer saw a car with a loose license plate and initiated the stop. Gresham was a passenger in the vehicle.
Deputies say as the officer turned on a light to read the license plate number, the suspect began firing a gun into the air and at the officer.
Gresham was later taken into custody. It’s unclear if he has an attorney.
