Wanted man forces entry into house and hides under bed after fleeing from traffic stop in Dalton
According to the Georgia State Patrol: "On June 18, 2020 at approximately 8:30 p.m., TFC Day was patrolling on Riverbend Road in Whitfield County when he observed a black Ford Expedition with a driver’s side brake light not working. He conducted a traffic stop and requested identification from the driver and other occupants in the vehicle. The occupant located on passenger side rear, who was later identified as Mr. Treavess Bashawn Beck DOB 1993), stated he did not have his identification on his person. Mr. Beck gave a false name and date of birth. AS TFC Day returned to his patrol car and began checking the information given to him, he observed Beck flee on foot running southbound on Riverbend Road before turning left onto New Doris Street. TFC Day questioned the occupants of the vehicle about what Mr. Beck's correct name was. They advised that he was known by the name Trey Beck. After positively identifying him, it was determined Beck had an active warrant for his arrest through the Dalton Police Department for failure to appear. As he fled on foot, Beck had made a forced entry into a residence on New Doris Street. The Dalton Police Department made contact with the owner of the residence, and she provided a key to open the front door. TFC Day assisted Officer W. Mefford, with the Dalton Police Department, as well as two other DPD officers in making entry into the residence. Beck was located a short time later hiding under the bed in the bedroom. TFC Day placed handcuffs on Beck and released him to the Dalton Police Department." Officer Mefford handled charges related to this incident. Treavess Bashawn Beck, 27 of Dalton, was charged by the Dalton Police Department with reckless conduct, two counts of criminal trespass (damage of $500 or less), misdemeanor failure to appear, parole violation, two counts of criminal trespass of property without permission, simple battery, loitering/prowling, giving false information to a law officer and two counts of misdemeanor willful obstruction of law officers.
