Man accused of ramming Calhoun police car

July 3, 2018--8:18 a.m.

CALHOUN POLICE REPORT

A Calhoun Police Officer was transported to Gordon Hospital Sunday with a sprained knee after his patrol vehicle and a car he was pursuing collided twice.

According to Calhoun Police reports, the officer had stopped the four-door Infinity driven by 42-year old George Wright Jevard Williams of Calhoun for a window tint violation on West May Street.

Williams initially stopped but then sped away as the officer was doing a license check.

The ensuing chase proceeded onto South Wall Street, Piedmont Street, East Line Street and Curtis Parkway where Williams nearly collided with other vehicles and was passing in the center lane.

He was also seen throwing a black box out of the window. 

Williams reportedly rammed the officer’s vehicle before turning onto Red Bud Road where he then hit the brakes near the I-75 underpass and the officer’s vehicle struck the rear of the Infinity, which spun out.

Williams got out and fled on foot into a wooded area where he was arrested.

He is charged with aggravated assault, fleeing or attempting to elude, reckless driving, obstruction of officers, and glazing of windows.

The wreck investigation was turned over to the Georgia State Patrol.
