A frightened girlfriend led her angry boyfriend right to police Tuesday after he tried to detain her, police said.
Camesa Sims, 32, was riding with boyfriend Tuesday evening when she told him she needed to pick up her children, Fulton County spokeswoman Detective Melissa Parker said.
But Sims' boyfriend, 30-year-old Dameion Givens, refused to let her out of his Buick LaSabre.
"He says, ‘you're not going anywhere,'" Parker said, repeating what Givens told Sims.
When Givens pulled into a RaceTrac gas station on Campbelton Road, police said Sims jumped out of the car and ran across the street to another gas station.
It isn't clear why Givens didn't give chase, but Sims called a friend to pick her up.
When Sims got into her friend's car, Givens began to follow them, Parker said.
"She called police and said she was coming to our major crimes division on Fulton Industrial Boulevard," Parker said of Sims.
Sims remained on the phone with police as she and her friend traveled west on Campbelton, then north to the precinct at 4701 Fulton Industrial, with Givens in pursuit.
"She told us where she was all along the way," Parker said. "When she pulled into the parking lot, Givens was behind her."
A number of S.W.A.T. officers were waiting. When Givens tried to drive away, officers used their vehicles to box him in.
Givens was arrested on false imprisonment and suspended license charges, and a gun was found in his car which Parker said might lead to more charges.
Also, Givens had an arrest warrant for unspecified charged from a police agency outside Fulton County, police said.
