On Sunday, a man was arrested by Bartow County Sheriff's deputies and charged with aggravated assault on a peace officer, aggravated assault, obstruction of officer, battery, terroristic threats and acts, simple assault and possession of marijuana less than 1 ounce.

According to the Bartow County Sheriff's incident report, Chad Andrew Pas made threats to do harm to persons with a gun or knife at Subway, 1211 Joe Frank Harris Parkway. A witness stated the suspect entered Subway about 7 p.m. and was acting very suspicious. He said Pas was yelling at customers and tried one time to enter through the "Employee Only" door. He also stated the suspect came up to the counter, pulled out a knife and said, "I will kill you."

After Pas went outside, he was approached by a deputy. When the deputy was within about 5 feet of Pas, the suspect snatched the belt from his pants and attempted to attack the officer. Able to step around the attack, the deputy was able to grab Pas from behind without being struck in the face. While attempting to detain him, Pas hit the deputy several times and attempted to take the gun from its holster, but was unsuccessful.

The deputy went to Cartersville Medical Center where they performed an X-ray on his right hand and it was determined at this time there were no fractures or breaks. Another officer transported Pas to the Bartow County Jail.
