A man was arrested for robbery after he threw a computer monitor at an officer, according to police.
Police said Phillip Noe, 48, broke into Elite Roofing shortly before midnight Tuesday.
Officers arrived at the store and set up a perimeter around the building after hearing an alarm.
While waiting for a K-9 unit to arrive, police said Noe exited the back door of the business carrying a computer monitor. When the suspect saw a police officer, he threw the monitor, striking the officer in the leg.
The suspect re-entered the building and fled through a front window. After a brief chase, Noe was arrested.
Police said Noe has been arrested 50 times in Davidson County.
