Police & Sheriff’s Reports

The individuals listed have been cited/arrested/charged in Troup County. However, this is not an admission of guilt. All parties are considered innocent until proved guilty.

• Thursday afternoon about 3:13 p.m., LaGrange Police were in the area of Hamilton Road near Wright Street when officers observed wanted suspect, Tony McCauley.

Officers were in the area searching for McCauley due to three active warrants for his arrest. Police first made contact with his sister and multiple other people asking if they had seen McCauley, but each denied having seen him.

Officers continued to search the area looking for McCauley and observed his sister speaking with someone near the intersection of Wright Street and Hamilton Road. Upon relocating to the intersection, police observed McCauley on a bicycle. McCauley then immediately fled on the bicycle.

Due to heavy traffic, police briefly lost McCauley, but later located his bicycle next to a car at the automotive shop at the intersection of Wright Street and Hamilton Road.

Police then continued searching the area and were flagged down by subject who stated they needed to check around the apartment complex on McGregor Street. Upon doing so, McCauley jumped out of some bushes and fled on foot again. Officers gave chase and eventually caught McCauley on Watson Street.

Upon handcuffing Mc-Cauley, he began claiming the cuffs were hurting his wrist, so officers adjusted them several times. McCauley then stated that his left shoulder hurt and he wanted to go to the hospital.

McCauley was then transported to the West Georgia Medical Center Emergency Room and cleared by hospital staff.

McCauley, age 48, was then transported to the Troup County Sheriff’s Office where he was booked into the jail and charged with four counts of Obstruction and a warrant for Felony Parole Violation.

She stated a few days later she purchased a new phone and upon syncing it with her old phone account noticed new text messages and new contacts. Upon opening the new messages with date stamps from August 17, she found messages stating “this Misha call me asap”, “this Misha I am out to call u,” and etc.
