According to the Arrest Report:
Johnny Lynn Hobbs, 39, of Old Dixie Highway is charged with felony fleeing to elude police officer, obstruction of an officer, reckless driving, driving while unlicensed and failure to use turn signal after an alleged high speed chase.
The officer first noticed the Harley Davidson when he changed lanes without using a turn signal.
He attempted to pull the motorcycle over and the motorcycle sped off. Hobbs allegedly sped down McConnell Road, through the stop sign at Oothacalooga Street, and left on West Line Street (Hwy. 156) without stopping.
The officer continued to chase him as he turned onto Old Rome Dalton Road. The report states that he was on both sides of the roadway, unable to maintain his lane.
Hobbs allegedly left the roadway, went into a field and behind a barn at the 1900 block of Old Rome Dalton Road.
He lost control of the motorcycle, jumped off and started running.
The city police officer tackled Hobbs who tried to break free. He allegedly reached into his front pocket while the deputy was giving him commands to show his hands. He continued to reach into his pockets, according to the report.
Not knowing whether or not Hobbs had a weapon, the officer, hit him 3-4 times with a baton. The whole time, Hobbs continued to try to get into his pockets.
A second officer arrived while they were still fighting and helped cuff Hobbs, who allegedly has a strong alcohol odor.
He complained of his testicles hurting and EMS was called. They cleared him.
The Harley Davidson motorcycle he was driving had a Suzuki license plate, and that Harley just happened to belong to the Gwinnett County Police Department.
