A Bartow County Sheriff's Office deputy gave a ride to a citizen Tuesday night. The man needed to get to CVS to get medication.

In an unrelated incident another Bartow County deputy was dispatched to Cartersville Medical Center in reference to an agency assist on Tuesday night. Upon arrival he met with a patient that had just been discharged and said he had nowhere to go. The deputy took him to The Hope House for shelter.

BCSO deputies and personnel, along with those at Cartersville Police Department, worked through the storm to get all essential personnel -- doctors, nurses, emergency dispatchers and other law enforcement officers -- to their place of employment.

Motor business burglarized

A Cartersville police officer was dispatched to Major Motors, 339 N. Tennessee St., on Tuesday morning in reference to a burglary. Upon arrival he spoke with the complainant who stated he arrived at work to find the business had been burglarized.

He stated between Saturday evening and Tuesday morning someone entered the business by forcing the side door open, breaking into the safe and stealing $1,200 in cash.

The officer observed the side door was forced open and foot impressions in the snow lead to the corner of Johnson Street and Ford Street before the impressions became indistinguishable. The complainant said the business was broken into about three weeks ago and that guns and money were stolen.

Man arrested after assaulting wife

A Bartow County deputy was dispatched to 53 Black Road on Tuesday night in reference to an assault. Upon arrival he spoke with the female victim who stated that her husband, Dustin Tate, grabbed her right ear. She said he was intoxicated and requested the keys to the vehicle, when she refused he became irate and pushed his body against hers several times and grabbed her ear. The deputy stated that he did notice a redness to the victim's ear. He spoke to the victim's mother who gave a similar account of the incident.

Tate was placed under arrest and transported to the Bartow County jail without incident. He was charged with simple battery under the Family Violence Act.
