On Jan. 8 at 7:15 p.m., a man was headed down Six Flags Drive in a 2012 Dodge Charger to make a U-turn.
“While in the parking lot, he was approached by two black males with handguns” and ordered out of the car, a warrant said.
According to the warrant, one man got into the car and drove off from the area, while Shawn Hixon of Powder Springs fled on foot.
Cobb Police said the victim knew he had met Hixon before and went to Facebook to discover his identity.
By the time the victim identified Hixon, the warrant said he was already in jail for giving police officers a false name and date of birth. Police say Hixon used the victim’s information from a wallet and identification found in the stolen vehicle.
Hixon’s latest charges from an April 11 arrest include willful obstruction of a law enforcement officer, tampering with evidence and possess/manufacture/distribute of a controlled substance or marijuana within 1000 feet of a school.
He was granted a $5,000 bond and was released from the Cobb County Jail more than two weeks later.
