The Bartow County Sheriff’s Office has arrested a Morrow man for several serious offenses involving a gun this morning at Cartersville Medical Center.
According to Sheriff Clark Millsap, deputies were called by hospital staff about a man with a gun at the emergency room entrance of the Cartersville Medical Center this morning at 8:39. Two deputies arrived on the scene within two minutes of the call. Once there, they met with hospital security who had 52 year old Harris Lee Holiday of Morrow, detained outside the entrance. After investigating the scene and speaking with witnesses, it was determined that Holiday had arrived at the hospital after showing a gun to a female acquaintance and demanding she take him somewhere. The female, Holiday, and another male witness in the car told deputies that Holiday showed them a gun and they were in fear of him hurting them with it. The female drove to Cartersville Medical Center and the other male jumped out of the car and ran to get security.
Deputies located a pistol where Holiday had put it in the car. It was also determined that Holiday was a convicted felon. Holiday was arrested and transported to the Bartow County Jail where he was charged with False Imprisonment, Aggravated Assault, Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon, and Possession of a Firearm during the Commission of a Crime. He is currently being held with a $15,000 bond. It was reported previously that Holiday was inside the hospital and this was found not to be true.
