11 Alive

DALTON, Ga.— The City of Dalton's Chief of Police got more exercise than he planned for when he went out for a jog on Thanksgiving morning. During the middle of his leisurely run he had to break into a full sprint to make an arrest.

Chief Jason Parker was jogging on Valley Drive when he saw something suspicious. "I saw a guy crossing the street and what was suspicious is he came out of a yard carrying a bunch of stuff," Chief Parker said.

When Chief Parker approached the man, who was later identified as 48-year old Thomas Green, he ran. "When I announced that I was a police officer he picked up speed a little bit but it was a short burst, and you could tell he was getting tired," the Chief said.
