The Georgia State Patrol's SWAT unit arrested the man thought to be responsible for shooting Chatahoochee Hills (Ga.) police officer Lt. Mike Vogt with a "high-powered" weapon as the officer approached his stopped vehicle.

Ronald Cook, 44, allegedly shot Vogt because he didn't want to be arrested again for driving drunk, AJC.com reports.
