The Georgia Supreme Court next week is scheduled to hear arguments on whether a Warner Robins police officer had the right to chase a man found at an elementary school after midnight.
Earnest Lee Walker is appealing his conviction for cocaine distribution, according to a summary from the court. Walker's lawyers argue that crack and a pipe that he threw away during the chase should not have been used as evidence.
A hearing on the case is scheduled for Monday at the state supreme court in Atlanta.
According to the summary, Walker was arrested Feb. 23, 2011 near Pearl Stephens Elementary School.
An officer saw him walking off school property, stopped and asked the man to take his hands out of his pockets.
Walker instead ran away, the summary says.
The officer caught him in a nearby yard, tased him and arrested him.
