Shortly after midnight on Tuesday, a Chattooga County deputy found a man walking on Oak Hill Road in Lyerly.

The deputy stopped to talk with the subject, identified as Christopher Hatcher.  Mr. Hatcher told the deputy that he was walking to his girlfriend’s house in Menlo.  The deputy told Hatcher that he would give him a ride, but he would have to pat him down before he got in the patrol car.

During the pat-down, the deputy found a straw containing a white, powdery substance.  The deputy found a clear, glass pipe in Mr. Hatcher’s jacket.

The deputy attempted to take Hatcher into custody and he ran into the woods.  The deputy gave chase and eventually found Hatcher lying in a dry creek bed.

Hatcher was placed in the patrol car and booked into the Chattooga County jail on a variety of drug charges, including violation of the Georgia Controlled Substance Act and pedestrian under the influence.
