One complainant, the owner of the Dodge truck, stated that he had left the vehicle unsecured, with the key inside, and had not given anyone permission to drive the truck. He also stated that two of his company checkbooks were missing from inside the vehicle. The owners of the other two damaged vehicles both stated that they heard a loud noise outside and approached to find the scene with no suspect in sight. A resident of the apartment building that had been struck also stated that she had heard a loud noise and noticed damage to the building both on the exterior and interior areas where the vehicle hit the structure. The most severely damaged vehicles were released to a wrecker service and no charges were filed due to the lack of a suspect.
Man's search for woman results in violence
Friday night a Cartersville officer arrived at 1400 Joe Frank Harris Parkway in reference to a possible fight in progress. After arriving on the scene it was discovered that the suspect had fled, but had caused injuries to three victims. The first victim stated that the suspect had entered his residence searching for the victim's daughter. The suspect had forced entry by kicking down the door, thus causing the older man to fall backward as he was talking to the suspect while holding the door barely open. After swinging his cane at the suspect attempting to make him leave, the angry male punched a glass window from outside of the apartment causing it to shatter.
When the older man's roommates arrived on the premises they attempted to speak to the suspect. As he was leaving the scene, the suspect ran over the second victim with his vehicle, causing abrasions and bleeding to the victim's right arm and leg. A younger man then tried to stop the suspect from leaving, but the offender hit the man with a bottle on the top of his head. Visible injuries were confirmed on all three victims and warrants have been issued for the suspect on charges of criminal trespass and battery.
Domestic dispute ends unwillingly
Shortly after midnight Saturday morning a county deputy was dispatched to the area of Mt. Pleasant and Cagle roads to meet with a complainant. Upon arrival, the woman stated that she and her husband had been involved in an argument. Both had been consuming alcoholic beverages earlier in the evening while celebrating New Year's with friends, but after arriving home the complainant's husband was verbally abusive and dragged his wife from the vehicle where she fell to the ground. When she stood back up she re-entered the vehicle and drove to the area where she met with the deputy and called for assistance. After traveling to the couple's residence and obtaining no answer the officer told the woman that it appeared there was no one there. Another officer arrived at the scene and the three entered the residence where they found the offender to be uncooperative and intoxicated. The man refused to answer any questions asked by the officers and proceeded to yell obscenities towards them. The man would not cooperate even after walking the offender to the patrol unit and then placing him inside and transporting him to the jail.
