A Forsyth County Public Facilities maintenance worker has been arrested for allegedly driving under the influence of drugs following a traffic incident on Ga. 400. 

According an incident report by the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office, Ronnie Shane Anglin, a 37-year-old from Dawsonville, was arrested on Feb. 28 after a red Toyota Tundra traveling southbound down Ga. 400, allegedly left the road, struck a street sign and a power pole, causing the power pole to catch fire. 

In the report, Deputy Jones states that, the driver of the Tundra was identified as Anglin, who was “stumbling around the vehicle.”

Jones said in the report that at the time of his arrest Anglin admitted that he was prescribed several different kinds of medications including Adderall, Subutex and Xanax. 

Anglin was charged with driving under the influence of drugs, driving too fast for conditions and failure to maintain lane and was subsequently arrested. He has since been released from the Forsyth County Jail on a $2,770 bond. 

According to Pat Carson, Director of Forsyth County Personnel Services, Anglin’s employment with the county was terminated the day after his arrest.
