Fincher makes contact with the rider who appears to be very nervous and isn’t quite sure where he’s headed. Sgt. Fincher asks if he can check the man for weapons, to which our suspect replies “no”. Our suspect is then asked to step in front of the patrol vehicle while Sgt. Fincher checks his record. The bike riding suspect then reaches into his waistband and pulls out a pouch and chucks it into the air is if nobody saw. Sgt. Fincher jumps out of his patrol car pulls out his taser and commands our suspect to the ground.

The pouch is recovered in the grass across the street with multiple bags of weed inside.

|Station/Area Command||Zone 3 Morning Watch|
|Why Law Enforcement||I started working in the State Prison System at the age of 18. When I turned 20, I began the process to join the Atlanta Police Department. The rest is dysfunctional history!|
|First Arrest||Wow, now that seems like ages ago! It was a domestic call that had started over food stamps. I remember the pain I felt for the children who were helpless and caught in the middle. Amongst my duties on scene, I did everything in my power to put smiles on their faces and hopefully leave a positive and motivational impression.|
|Best part of the job||I have a strong work ethic and enjoy the extremely fast pace of working Zone 3. Everyday I do my best to embody the spirit of General Patton and LEAD my officers from the front. I refuse to be a “boss” and rather a true example to my troops.|
|Hobbies||I love film and work in the TV/Movie industry when I can. I have been very fortunate to work in some big films and with great people. To be a part of the process developing the final product that is put into theaters or TV is intriguing and a passion of mine.|
