Man Arrested for Stalking

SAVANNAH, GA –  After a brief pursuit on Wednesday night, Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department’s Southside Precinct officers, with assistance from Georgia State Patrol, arrested Michael Thomas, 38, on multiple charges including stalking.

The incident began at approximately 8 p.m. outside of Metro’s Southside Precinct, on the 7800 block of Abercorn Street. An SCMPD detective observed Thomas behind the wheel of a white Dodge pick-up truck that was blocking another vehicle in a parking space. The 70-year-old female driving the other vehicle advised that since that morning Thomas spent several hours cleaning his truck at a carwash near her residence. While running errands later in the day, she observed Thomas following her in his truck to multiple destinations. This prompted her not to exit her vehicle and to call police. Thomas drove away toward Mall Boulevard when the detective began questioning him.

A Metro unit spotted Thomas’ vehicle. With emergency equipment activated, the officer followed Thomas to White Bluff Road, where he was stopped by GSP. Thomas was immediately taken into custody.

Thomas is charged with stalking, felony fleeing to elude, failure to yield to a traffic control device and speeding.
