DUNWOODY, Ga. — A Dunwoody police officer stopped an Atlanta man who was seen diagonally crossing the intersection of Perimeter Center West and Perimeter Center Place on Oct. 28.
Abram Walker, 40, told the police officer he had the red light and had done nothing wrong. According to an incident report, Walker tried to walk away when the officer asked for his ID, and he began yelling that he was being harassed.
That set off a testy exchange during which the officer grabbed Walker, handcuffed him and tackled him to the ground after he refused to identify himself, according to the report.
Once officers arrested Walker, he reportedly kicked the squad car doors and began spitting inside the police vehicle, telling police he had been diagnosed with coronavirus 12 days prior and wanted to infect the officer. In his report, the officer indicated that Walker also threatened to “rip my mouth off” and also said he wanted to kill him after he got out of jail.
Walker was charged with disorderly conduct, obstruction of police officer, felony interference with government property and felony terroristic acts.
