A Cartersville man allegedly walked into Cartersville Police Department Saturday evening and threatened to kill anyone who tried to make him stop drinking.

According to the incident report, a dispatcher called 911 just after 9 p.m. to say Tavaris Majors, 23, of Cartersville walked into the lobby carrying a beer and threatened to kill whomever tried to make him stop drinking.

A CPD officer located Majors walking in the roadway, where he admitted to throwing rocks at cars. Majors said he had been kicked out of his apartment and had started drinking.

Majors told the officer he liked the police dispatcher and would not hurt the woman, but he would kill anyone who tried to end his drinking.

The officer moved Majors out of the roadway and into the back seat of his patrol car. When a back-up officer arrived, the initial officer advised that Majors had been confrontational and threatened to fight police.

After a brief struggle, Majors was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.

According to the report, the two were in a light-in-color passenger car. They were caught on camera walking around the store with what appeared to be a hand saw.

The pair did not make entry into the business.
