Daniel Roberts arrested on new charges for allegedly threatening and assaulting teen
Roberts third arrest
The defendant accused of killing 19-year-old Kaleb Duckworth last July has been arrested in Dawson County again. Daniel Lee Roberts was arrested by the Dawson County Sheriff's Office the evening of May 20, 2022, according to the weekly arrest report. He was charged with one count each of making terroristic threats and aggravated assault. Roberts allegedly threatened a teenage victim on May 13 between 5-6 p.m. near Dawson Village Way North and Ga. 53, according to a DCSO warrant. He is accused of telling the victim to come to his residence, where he, Roberts, would “‘give him the same thing he gave his buddy,’ referring to Kaleb Duckworth.” Roberts allegedly committed the assault against the same victim on May 19 between 1:10 and 1:20 p.m. near 1860 Dawson Forest Road, according to another DCSO warrant. He was driving his pick-up truck when he entered the victim’s lane of travel and caused the other person to swerve in order to avoid a collision. Roberts’ arrest comes just eight days after his lawyers filed for a change of venue regarding the 2021 case.
