MILLEDGEVILLE — The following is information compiled from public records taken from reports of the Milledgeville Police Department and the Baldwin County Sheriff's Office. It is our policy to not disclose the names of victims. These reports do not reflect guilt or innocence. An “arrest” does not always indicate incarceration. The charges filed are noted in the narrative.

Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office

Obstruction of Officers

Officers initiated a traffic stop after an individual failed to maintain lane Oct. 23. While speaking with the individuals in the car officers noticed an open container of alcohol in the vehicle. The driver’s dialogue was inconsistent and officers were given permission to search the vehicle. Baggies of suspected methamphetamine were discovered, and when the passenger heard that he was going to be handcuffed he fled into the woods. Officers had to chase him in order to apprehend him. The passenger was charged with two counts of obstruction of an officer and giving a false name and date of birth to law enforcement. The driver was issued a citation for failure to maintain lane, open container of alcohol while operating a vehicle, and safety restraint violation.
