Gordon Ray Miller was arrested for aggressive panhandling after police said he was heavily intoxicated and was found lying on his back holding a cardboard sign. He was at the Shallowford Road exit of I-75.
Miller, 55, of 608 S. Main St., was also charged with public intoxication.
In the incident last Wednesday, paramedics were first called to the location after it was found that Miller had passed out. EMTs said he was heavily intoxicated. They agreed to leave him with "a Good Samaritan."
However, police were called later that day to the same site. An officer said Miller was panhandling at the I-75 south ramp.
The officer said he was "lying on the ground while holding up his cardboard sign." Miller admitted to drinking alcoholic beverages. He smelled strongly of an intoxicant.
Police said he was arrested "because he presented a danger to himself and to the public."
