A Rockmart man remains in the Polk County Jail on a single misdemeanor charge after reports that he busted out windows and threw a chair at a woman during an angry outburst, according to Polk County Police reports.
Mark Jason Williams, 47, of 224 Lakeview Road, Rockmart, was arrested on a charge of a simple battery on Saturday, April 24 and remained in jail on a $1,000 bond from magistrate court after police reported that he had been having an angry outburst throughout the day.
A neighbor contacted relatives who owned the home to report what was happening, and when they arrived the outburst continued and Williams was alleged to have thrown a wooden chair from the kitchen at one of the people involved, striking her in the leg. She was not visibly injured and did not request any aid from Redmond EMS.
Williams was taken into custody without further incident and transported to jail. While in the patrol car, Williams told officers his outburst was caused by relationship issues that angered him so much he took a wrench to the windows of the house. He also told officers he hadn’t thrown the chair, and that another person pulled a gun on him.
Police did not find any evidence of a gun on the scene from any parties.
No additional charges were filed.
