James Keith Riseden

At around 1:45 Monday afternoon, Cartersville Police officers observed wanted subject Mr. James Keith Riseden near ATCO Village and attempted to make contact. Riseden fled on foot, crossing over the busy intersection of Cassville Road and Sugar Valley Road and disappeared into thick brush.

Patrol officers and the investigations division continued to pursue until contact was made behind a small residential area. Riseden sprayed the first responders with bear spray before he was arrested without harm to himself or other officers.

James Riseden has multiple warrants including possession of methamphetamine, burglary, obstructing law enforcement officers, and parole violation.
