Johnny Lamar Anthony, 50 of Rome, was arrested this week after reports said he attempted to flee from police while they attempted to conduct a traffic stop on Turner McCall Blvd at West First Street.

Reports said that officers saw Anthony driving without his headlights on and attempted to conduct a stop.  He eventually turned on Nelm Street where he stopped.

While questioning Anthony, officers said that they detected alcohol on his breath.  They also discovered that his drivers license had been suspended since 2018.

Anthony is charged with DUI, attempting to elude police, driving on a suspended license and a headlight violation.
