Nydia Tisdale was found guilty of a misdemeanor charge of obstruction of an officer for resisting arrest by then Capt. Tony Wooten of the Dawson County Sheriff’s Office late yesterday afternoon. The jury rendered their unanimous decision after nearly four hours of deliberation.

Tisdale was found not guilty of a felony charge of obstruction of an officer as well as not guilty of misdemeanor criminal trespass.

She was arrested Aug. 24 2013 at a GOP event at Burt’s Pumpkin Farm in Dawsonville and indicted in 2016 by a grand jury charged with one count of felony obstruction of an officer and misdemeanor obstruction of an officer and misdemeanor criminal trespass.

Tisdale, 54, was represented by Bruce Harvey and Catherine Bernard. She is scheduled to be sentenced Dec. 18.
