May 2, 2019--11:46 a.m.


Cartersville Police arrest a man for allegedly looking into a woman’s window at an apartment complex on Massell Drive.

According to the incident report, the woman told officers that 58-year old Herold Jean-Baptiste was spying on her and yelling at occupants inside the apartment.

A neighbor backed up the victim’s story and showed officers a picture she had taken of the suspect peering into the window.

When asked if he understood his Miranda Rights, Jean-Baptiste said “No” and then said he was a “chief” and the officer needed to release him.

Jean-Baptiste was charged with being a Peeping Tom, criminal trespass and public drunk.
