The deputy who arrested a Roswell woman over the weekend at a political rally in Dawson County has been placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of an internal affairs investigation into the incident.

The FBI task force investigating a string of armed robberies at CVS stores across metro-Atlanta has not reached out to local law enforcement to determine if a February robbery at the Dawsonville location is connected.
