It has been a tough weekend in Bartow County, headlined by a dangerous vehicle pursuit Saturday night. The BCSO pursuit of a stolen truck out of Paulding County led to the suspect almost hitting a small passenger car head-on at State Route 293 near Emerson at over 100 miles-per-hour. The suspect also hit speeds of up to 94 miles-per-hour through Red Top Mountain State Park. The suspect fled on foot after ditching the truck off Bartow Carver Road.
A man allegedly threatened to shoot a complainant in a home on Pine Drive in Acworth and shot a wall in the residence Sunday morning. That case is under investigation.
The BCSO arrested Franklin Morales for aggravated assault and terroristic threats and acts after allegedly chasing someone with a knife and threatening to kill her at a residence on Young Street in Cartersville Saturday night.
A suspect broke a wooden post off the front porch of a residence on Centerport Drive in White Saturday night and struck someone in the back of the head. The victim is alright.
We’ll have more specifics on these stories during Bartow’s Morning News Monday morning.
