Jackson Co. fugitive nabbed in Hall Co.

A Hall County man wanted by Jackson County authorities was arrested by a Hall County sheriff’s deputy early Thursday but not before a “slow-speed” chase that ended at the man’s house where Phillip Lamar Robertson, 56, was taken into custody.


“An HCSO deputy attempted to stop Mr. Robertson around 2:40 a.m. on Thursday, March 21, after he conducted a license plate check on the vehicle and determined Mr. Robertson had a felony probation warrant from Jackson County.

Mr. Robertson failed to pull over when the deputy turned on his blue lights.

Instead, he traveled to his residence on Old Cornelia Highway before stopping. Speeds did not rise above 30 mph. Mr. Robertson told the deputy he had a special needs adult daughter at home alone and that’s why he didn’t pull over.

He was cited for the traffic violations you see above. He was taken to jail on a hold for Jackson County.”
