MARIETTA — Brandon Michael Jordan of Mableton is being held at the Cobb County Jail on multiple charges after he allegedly careened in and out of traffic during evening rush hour at speeds double the posted limit last week.

The nine felony and misdemeanor charges in the Jan. 24 incident includes hit and run, assaulting on an officer and cocaine possession.

According to a warrant, Cobb County Police Sgt. J.B. Wade pulled Jordan over on Veterans Memorial Highway for speeding and reckless driving.

As Wade was getting out of his patrol car, Jordan rammed his 1996 Nissan Maxima into it, pinning Wade between the door and the chassis.

Anderson said Jordan fled and “placed the public in danger” by passing cars on a double yellow line, “driving head-on into oncoming traffic,” and driving off the road several times.

He was clocked at speeds up to 90 mph on the 45-mph South Gordon Road and 75 mph on the 35-mph Mount Pisgah Road.

Jordan was charged with intent to distribute after police found 17.8 grams of cocaine divided into 26 plastic sandwich bags.

The suspect was also driving with a suspended license, Anderson said, for a DUI on Jan. 8, 2011.

Wade’s right leg was hurt but not broken and he is back on the job, police said.
