Report: Woman bit State Trooper during traffic stop

A 32-year-old Rome woman is facing a felony obstruction charge after she allegedly bit a Georgia State Trooper’s hand during a traffic stop Tuesday.

According to Floyd County Jail records:

Amber Ladawn McMurray was stopped on Highway 101 at Rockmart Road for driving 78 miles per hour in a 55-mile-per-hour zone.

She then refused to sign the citation and would not get out of her vehicle.

A struggle ensued and the trooper was bitten, sustaining a laceration to the hand.

The incident occurred in the presence of a child who was in the vehicle.

McMurray was also charged with battery, simple battery on a law enforcement officer, misdemeanor obstruction, 3rd-degree cruelty to children, and speeding.

A 35-year-old Rome man is accused of possessing eleven stolen rifles and shotguns.

According to Floyd County Jail records:

Paden Elliott Brownlow claimed he purchased the firearms for $1,300.

Several of the guns still had the price tags on them.

During the execution of a search warrant at Brownlow’s Huffaker Road residence, officers found a total of 30 firearms, three of which did not have a displayed identification number, and one of the firearms was a sawed-off shotgun.
