Deputy commandeers suspects bike
Michael A. Andrews
Authorities arrested a wanted man Thursday after a Bulloch County sheriff's deputy chased him down — on the suspect's bicycle. Michael A. Andrews, 22, of Peachtree Street, was acting suspiciously when he spotted deputies around 4:30 p.m. Thursday as they questioned others on Mikell Street about reported drug activity, Deputy Mark Guarino said in a report. Guarino and Sgt. Jason Kearney, members of the Sheriff's Targeted Enforcement Patrol, or STEP, unit, were assisting Bulloch County Drug Suppression Team agents when they noticed Andrews "... walking through the yard while pushing a bicycle ... (shielding) his body to the side" and reaching into the area of his waistband, Guarino wrote.
