He was arrested at the Radisson at 1775 Parkway Place in Marietta on Tuesday night. An arrest warrant obtained by Channel 2 Action News said the undercover officer “gave Newson the opportunity to stop communicating several times.”
Newson bailed himself out for $20,000, according to Cobb County Jail records.
“We are aware of the situation and all questions must be directed to the investigating authorities,” Bamba said.
The Georgia National Guard has a base in Marietta at 1000 Halsey Avenue, and it was marked at Newson’s address in Cobb County’s jail records.
