Atlanta Falcon Face-Tattooed Man Arrested in SCAD Robbery

Tip leads to arrest of man, who sports a Falcons' logo between his eyes, in connection with last month's Midtown school incident in which two students were and bound and robbed in their dorm room.

The undefeated Atlanta Falcons are coming up big winners this fall, but apparently a man with the logo of the Dirty Birds tattooed between his eyes came up a loser when he was arrested in connection with last month’s armed robbery in a Savannah College of Art and Design dorm room.

The Atlanta Police Department announced today that an anonymous tip led to the arrest of Richard D Chaney, 29, in connection with the Sept. 17 incident in which two men allegedly broke into a dorm room of the Midtown school and bound and robbed a pair of male students.

APD plans to release more details later Thursday. Fulton County Jail records indicate Chaney, who was charged with robbery and false imprisonment, was arrested on Oct. 3. A second suspect is believed to still be at-large.

Late last month, APD released a surveillance video_and explained that one of the suspects had a PacMan symbol tattooed to his neck, and the Falcons’ logo tattooed between his eyes.

An examination of Chaney’s photo from the Fulton County Jail reveals a small Falcons’ logo between his eyes. The 5-0 Falcons are off to their best start in franchise history. PacMan cannot be detected in the jail photo.

The announcement comes a day after DeKalb County sheriffs arrested a second suspect in connection with an early July Georgia Tech dorm room armed robbery.

Really?! A somewhat-young black male committed a crime in Midtown? Who would have expected that?

It's not about race, but the reality is that 99% of the robberies and muggings in Midtown are somewhat young black males!!!! Good Riddance another mugger is of the streets! I would have loved to run into that punk in Midtown....

He looks a lot older than 29. That's what crack will do to you. Please, just put down this rabid animal. Put him out of his misery.

LOL! Another cut and paste. It would be funny if it wasn't so serious and pathetic.

You're finally back to sports, Hunt. Congrats

I'm glad this dirty dirty bird was caught ... Now, can his tatoo be changed into a Saints logo? I hate those guys!

LMAO that someone would be dumb enough to put such a prominent tattoo on their face, but thank goodness he did. At least when he gets out and does it again, his probation officer and everyone else will immediately know the culprit

I wondered why I had not seen him coming in and out of his 'base camp" 223 13th St since last week when he was carrying a new laptop bag at 6:15 am
