A man who shot up the bedroom of his Acworth home was tased after a brief standoff Monday night.

Bartow County Sheriff’s Office deputies and agents with the Bartow-Cartersville Drug Task Force were called to 4508-B Kings Camp Road about 7 p.m. after a female resident said Timothy Clark fired rounds inside the home, the incident report stated.

The woman said Clark became upset when a cat jumped onto the dining room table. He then picked up the table and threw it, scattering dishes and an urn containing a relative’s ashes.

According to the woman, she followed Clark into a bathroom and told him he had knocked over the urn and cursed at him. Clark then stated, “I should shoot you.” The report stated the woman exited the home when she heard Clark beating on the filing cabinet where she placed the gun. Once outside, the woman told deputies she heard about four shots from inside the residence.

A witness said the woman and Clark argued but she did not overhear the conversation.

A neighbor told deputies he heard four or five small gunshots coming from the residence about five minutes before police arrived.

While speaking with witnesses, the deputy reported DTF agents advised Clark was refusing to exit the home. “After a brief standoff outside of the residence, I overheard [the agent] say Timothy was outside of the residence,” the report stated.

Bartow County EMS treated Clark who had been tased, according to the report.

Clark told the deputy he pushed over the table but denied firing the handgun. He said he broke a wooden chair on the filing cabinet.

A search of the home recovered the Glock .40 caliber in a dresser drawer in the master bedroom, along with five empty shell casings on the floor.

Clark was arrested and charged with criminal trespass under the Family Violence Act and reckless conduct.

Numerous thefts, break-ins reported at RV and boat storage

Customers of a recreational vehicle and dry dock storage facility reported break-ins Monday.

Six reports were filed Monday with the BCSO concerning damages at 6610 Glade Road in Acworth. Three customers said employees of the business called Sunday to advise them of the damages. In one report, an employee reported 15 trailers had been damaged in recent days.

The following cases were reported:

• At 9:11 a.m. a woman said windows were busted on her pull-behind camper. The deputy reported a large rock on the floor inside the door along with glass and a hole in the screen door where the rock passed through.

According to the deputy, a large portion of the wooden fence at the rear of the building appeared to have been removed and resecured with nails.

• Just after 11 a.m. the deputy met with the owner of a pull-behind camper that had a broken window. The inside appeared to have been gone through and a second window looked as though it was pried open from the outside.

• Also at 11, the deputy met with a female whose camper had been gone through after the window by the door was broken out.

• Shortly after 4:30 p.m., a second deputy met with the owner of a camping trailer that had been entered after the glass in a rear door was smashed. A 32-inch, flat-screen TV was taken. The damage was estimated at $1,500.

• The deputy met with an employee at the same time who reported 20 feet of galvanized chain link fencing was pushed over after the barbed wire was unstrung. The damage was estimated at $1,500.

• Just after 5 p.m. the owner of a new trailer said someone pried open a window but took no property from inside. A TV was pulled from its mount, however. The cost of repairs was estimated at $500.
