The man later identified as Rodney Wayne Wimpy, 39, of Rome, would not obey an officer's command to stop and was pepper sprayed.
Officers say Wimpy tried to resist during the arrest and was charged with two counts of felony obstruction of an officer, theft by taking, possession of the tools for the commission of a crime, prowling, second-degree criminal damage to property and giving false information or false name.
When officers retrieved Wimpy's belongings on the east side of the building, they reported finding a bag containing a head lamp, gloves and tool set. A large roll of copper wire and large piece of copper tubing also were found in the area, along with five shirts.
Groups allegedly file unfounded police reports against each other
Bartow County Sheriff's Office deputies responding to a Monday aggravated assault call found no evidence a crime had been committed, but discovered the two groups involved have a history of filing unfounded reports against one another, according to the incident report.
Deputies responded around 3:20 p.m. to a gas station at 125 Market Place Blvd., where the complainant claimed another woman drove very close to her, and may have been trying to hit her.
A clerk at the gas station told deputies she did not see the woman attempt to run over the complainant, who seemed equally involved in a verbal argument with the other group.
Accidents and injuries
Georgia State Patrol troopers responded to two accidents with no injuries in the 24 hours preceding 5 p.m. Tuesday.
Cartersville police worked three Monday crashes with no injuries.
