High speed chase involves PCSO and transit bus
A Putnam County man stole a county transit bus on Scuffleboro Road around 4 p.m. Feb. 3. Putnam County Sheriff's Deputies intercepted the bus a few miles away, resulting in a high-speed chase along Pea Ridge Road, Oconee Springs Road and State Route 16 to Sparta. The man, Michael Douglas Freeman, age 63, of 805 S. Steel Bridge Rd., Eatonton, was captured inside the Sparta city limits. See the Feb. 9 edition of The Eatonton Messenger for the complete story.
