Roach is a licensed dentist, according to the Georgia Department of Community Health, and was listed as having a practice in Norcross. The website and Facebook page for his office appear to have been taken down after his arrest.
His girlfriend reported the alleged assault Saturday, three days before officers went to Roach’s home on Osborne Road to serve an arrest warrant, knowing he may be armed.
SWAT teams were called to the home after officers tried to serve an arrest warrant.
Brookhaven police spokesman Maj. Brandon Gurley said Roach barricaded himself inside his home, prompting police to call a SWAT team. Crews shot off flash bangs and sent a robot in to search room by room, eventually arresting him.
“He did not surrender,” Gurley said at the scene. “There was a struggle, but he is OK and in custody.”
After being treated at the hospital, he was taken to the jail Thursday and booked on five counts of obstruction and one count each of false imprisonment, criminal damage to property, family violence battery, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and cocaine possession.
