ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) - Officers in Bibb County arrested and charged a man with obstruction, interference, and probation violation recently.

But, the story of how they apprehended the man is one that they’ll never forget.

Upon executing a search warrant at a home on Grover Drive, Bibb County detectives say they flushed the man out from hiding.

As the man, armed with what appeared to be a machete, fled from police into the woods, police say he was caught into a swamp near Gibson Lake.

Deputies say they later arrested the man, but say an 11-foot alligator is known to inhabit the area.

No one was injured, but the officers were on high alert.
