A 24-year-old Lyndale, Ca., resident has been charged with nine felony warrants in connection with Thursday afternoon’s shooting of a Chickamauga, Ga., police officer, according to Walker County Sheriff Steve Wilson.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has obtained warrants charging Michael Anthony Brooks II with the crimes that occurred in Walker County. Additional charges will be obtained in Catoosa County for carjacking and in Hamilton County for the assaults against Walker and Catoosa County deputies involved in the vehicle pursuit of Brooks, Sheriff Wilson said.
The nine warrants are two counts of obstruction of a police officer, two counts of theft by taking, two counts of aggravated assault on a police officer, three counts of aggravated assault.
Brooks remains in the Hamilton County Jail on $150,000 bond.
The two persons in the vehicle with Brooks were questioned Thursday night and released without charges.
Brooks fled in a Jeep after shooting the officer in the leg. He later stole a car from a woman on Three Notch Road.
Brooks was stopped on I-75 North just over the Tennessee line after being chased by Georgia officers.
