Henderson initially refused to leave the house when deputies tried to arrest him, Ralston said. But a deputy convinced him to come outside.
Deputies learned that Henderson is an Adairsville police officer after they spotted a marked patrol car on the property. He has been placed on paid administrative leave, according to Adairsville police Capt. Luis Dean.
Henderson faces misdemeanor simple battery and false imprisonment charges as well as a felony aggravated assault charge, according to jail records.
