A man who led police on a nine-day chase after he walked into a pharmacy and threw gas on an employee, has been arrested.
Michael Roberts was arrested this afternoon and he has been charged with aggravated assault and armed robbery, police said.
Dalton Police spokesman Bruce Frazier said Roberts demanded pain killers at a local Dalton drug pharmacy on May 29, but when he was refused he threw gas on the employee and stole bottles of Percocet.
Roberts then hid out on the roof of Avis Apparel and when he was chased by police Wednesday, he escaped again. Frazier said when Roberts fled he hurt his leg jumping from a roof.
