PELHAM, GA (WALB) - Some people in Pelham are angry that man was arrested for aggravated assault on a police officer after an officer shot at his vehicle.
Police arrested 25-year-old Mark Dylan Rutledge last Wednesday.
They got a call that afternoon about a fight involving weapons near the intersection of Church and Mitchell streets.
When they got there there was a crowd of more than 50-people in the street. Police say when they tried to talk with Rutledge he got in his car and tried to move it.
They told him to get out but he refused. Officer Christopher Hosey says Rutledge tried to run him over so he shot at his vehicle once.
"The officer had to take evasive maneuvers to basically jump out of the way of Rutledge. Rutledge accelerated at a very high rate toward the officer and there was a shot fired by the officer at Rutledge's vehicle," says Inv. Rod Williams with the Pelham Police Department.
The GBI is investigating the shooting.
Rutledge is charged with aggravated assault on a peace officer, felony obstruction, DUI and several other charges.
Family members of Rutledge say pelham police went too far. They plan to hold a town meeting at the local Depot at 5 pm Monday to discuss issues involving the Police department. Feedback
