According to a warrant for his arrest, Elisha Gilbert, 30, crossed Canton Road near the intersection with Farm Ridge Road near the Cobb-Cherokee border and threw a large black object into traffic at 6:22 p.m. The object didn’t hit any vehicles, the warrant says.
Then things got weird.
When a police officer approached Gilbert, the man told the officer to “square off and come get some” and hurled obscenities at him, the warrant says. The officer reportedly told Gilbert to calm down and stop cursing and asked him if he had any weapons.
Police said Gilbert then pulled down his pants, exposing his genitals, and yelled “I will show you a weapon. I have one right here.”
The warrant points out that Gilbert “was referring to his penis.”
Police also said that when Gilbert was handcuffed, he gave the officer a fake name.
Gilbert is charged with terroristic threats, a felony, and using fighting words, giving a fake name, jaywalking and public indecency, all misdemeanors. He is being held at the Cobb County Jail without bail.
Cobb Police declined to comment on the case.
