An Alpharetta man is accused of drunkenly headbutting a cop so hard he chipped the officer’s tooth at that Jason Aldean concert in SunTrust Park.
The show was delayed due to thunder in the area, but the man refused to leave.
“I’m not leaving. You can’t make me leave,” he told the cop, according to a warrant.
The guy’s friends held him back as he cursed at the officer and threatened to fight him.
So the cop handcuffed the man and tried to take him to the stadium police precinct. While doing so, the man quickly reared his head back, so the officer put him to the ground. In that process, the man’s forehead hit the cop’s tooth, chipping it.
The man bonded out for $11,220 about five hours later on his charges that include disorderly conduct and public intoxication.
