Fleeing Peachtree City police on April 16, driving recklessly and having a vehicle with a large number of drugs will come with a steep price to pay while facing 64 drug and traffic violations.

Gerontay D. Adams, 29, of Stone Mountain, was charged with 64 drug and traffic violations, according to Fayette County Jail records.

Peachtree City Police Department spokesman Chris Hyatt said officers at approximately 4:32 p.m. stopped a black Chevrolet Impala on Ga. Highway 74, suspected to contain a person with outstanding arrest warrants.

“After initially stopping, the driver fled and drove erratically and dangerously while doing so. Officers suspected the driver was also intoxicated and pursued the vehicle to try and intervene. The suspect drove onto the wrong side of the highway and through a median – where an officer ended the pursuit by ramming the suspect’s vehicle and disabling it,” said Hyatt. “The driver fled on foot but was captured a short distance away.”

Along with traffic charges, Hyatt said the drug charges included possession with intent to distribute cocaine, trafficking MDMA, possession with intent to distribute marijuana and possession of a firearm during commission of a felony.

The complete list of offenses for which Adams was charged include:

• following too close, two charges

• crossing median/divided highway, five charges

• passing on hill/curve

• aggressive driving

• driving through safety zone, two charges

• DUI alcohol

• driving on wrong side of road, two charges

  1. Another piece of dog manure that is off the street. I hope. But you never know with all of these catch and release laws the states have now. Thanks to left wing defund the cops advocates. People please do not let PTC fall to the criminal activities that foster most of suburban Atlanta. Keep these degenerates out of Fayette County and stand up for what is right. Parents keep your entitled little brats from inviting these thugs into my neighborhood.

  2. It looks like it is THE END OF THE LINE for this WRETCHED, CRIMINAL LOW-LIFE ‘Gerontay’! Tell all of your ‘Home Slices’ back up there in ‘Stoned’ Mountain to STAY THE HELL OUT OF PEACHTREE CITY with your DRUG PUSHING POISON and other criminal activities! The PTC Police DO NOT PLAY down here in our Fair City! Notify the Firing Squad to STARY WARMING UP!

    • Good Gawd Crashing Boulder….they should pull over every dingy Chevy Impala that comes through PTC.
      This Gangsta’ wuz runnin’ a goody shop out of his ride.
      Dude has just turned over his life till maybe …FOREVER in JAIL

      Here is the conclusion…they would not come her if people were not buying within an established network.

  3. Awesome job by PTC law enforcement! Gerontay will spend a very long time in jail. This is a good result, but we know much, if not all, of the drugs are coming into the US thanks to Biden’s failure at the border. Sleepy Joe is making the cartel billionaires!

    • Where are the leaders who swore to protect us?

      I’ll bet the elected ones in DC would howl like hounds and do something if their child was ruined by drugs…OH I FORGOT…Biden must not give a Damn about the rest of us if he won’t even look at HIS OWN SON and not see the damage of drugs….BECAUSE HE MADE TOO MUCH MONEY OFF OF HUNTER.
