A Cartersville man told police early Sunday he had been robbed near his home.

According to the Cartersville police report, the victim told police he was walking westbound along Johnson Street near Gilmer Street about 1:30 a.m. when an unknown black male approached walking east.

The man said when the suspect came within a few feet he struck the victim with a closed fist below the right eye, leaving a contusion about an inch long on the right cheekbone. According to the victim, the suspect demanded the victim "gimme all your money." The man said he handed over $525 and told the suspect to "take it all."

The suspect, described as a black male, 5 foot 10 inches to 6 foot, weighing 180 to 200 pounds with gold teeth, fled west toward Gilmer Street.

Man flees police, later caught

Saturday morning Cartersville police attempted to stop a Chevy S10 after a check returned expired tags, no insurance and warrants for the truck's owner.

According to the police report, about 8:30 a.m. an officer attempted to stop the truck along Old Tennessee Road Northeast when the driver fled on foot.

The officer lost sight of the man -- Danny Burke Taylor, 38, of Highway 411, Cartersville -- after he jumped a ditch and entered the woodline parallel to Highway 411. Another officer later located Taylor near a church in the area.

The owner of the vehicle consented to a search of the vehicle which returned a glass pipe containing suspected methamphetamine. The woman denied it was hers, saying it belonged to Taylor.

Taylor was arrested and charged with possession of meth, possession of a drug-related object, obstruction, driving while license suspended, no insurance and obstructed tag.

Man arrested after disturbing the peace

Bartow County Sheriff's deputies were called Saturday morning just after 7 a.m. to a report of disorderly conduct.

The complainant said Jacob Doran, 31, of 26 Lantern Circle, Cartersville, had been sitting in the driveway for over an hour revving the engine so loud he blew the engine and was cursing.

The deputy attempted to talk to Doran who began cursing and yelling before fleeing into the residence and locking himself inside.

Doran was eventually arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.
