Carroll County Sheriff’s Office Captain, Jeff Richards says the officer arrived alone at an old Newnan Road address to follow up on a report regarding the safety and well-being of a small child.
“According to the officer’s report, he attempted to detain the suspect for his own safety and investigation,” Richards read from the document. “The suspect’s brothers became upset and pulling at the officer’s arms… and at some point, one of the brothers threw a brick at the officer. The officer was able to place a call for help.”
Christopher, Freddie and Ralph Nixon each face charges of obstruction of an officer.
Christopher is also facing charges related to crimes against children, according to Richards.
