Two Douglasville men allegedly attacked a Cobb County police officer during an arrest Sept. 6 near a Wal-Mart on Chastain Meadows Parkway north of Marietta on Interstate 575.

According to the warrant, while the officer was placing Quindarian Deontae Lewis in handcuffs, Lewis pulled away and punched the officer on the right side of his jaw.

Lewis then placed his hands around the officer’s throat and “willfully resisted arrest,” the warrant stated.

While the officer was attempting to detain Lewis, Jamarius Chevez Turner reportedly kicked the officer with his right leg, striking the officer in his groin.

Lewis and Turner were charged with felony counts of obstruction and given $7,500 bonds.

When the officer asked Lewis for his name, he responded, “Your mom,” which led to a second misdemeanor charge of giving false information.
