A Kingston resident told a Bartow County deputy she felt threatened after almost being attacked by two tan pit bulls on Sunday after returning from church.

According to the report, the Tower Street resident said she is afraid to allow her kids to play outside because of the dogs. She said the issue has been ongoing, adding that she contacted Kingston City Hall earlier this month and has not received a reply.

Bartow County dispatch advised Animal Control does not respond to animal problems inside Kingston city limits. The deputy checked the area to no avail.

spending Valentine's Day with him

Bartow County deputies responded to an early morning Valentine dispute shortly after midnight Monday. Upon arrival at 209 Cline Smith Road, deputies heard a physical altercation, including a female screaming and two men on an upper balcony struggling back and forth.
