Charges Filed in Almond St. Incident Last Week

A Toccoa man faces multiple felony charges after he allegedly shot at two women in a pick-up truck last week.

Wednesday, Toccoa Police Chief Tim Jarrell announced that authorities have charged 55-year-old Glen Adams, Jr. of Almond Street in Toccoa with two counts of Aggravated Assault and one count of Possession of a Firearm during the Commission of a Felony.

Jarrell said that Adams fired shots at two women in a red pick-up truck on Almond Street last Thursday. According to Jarrell, the women were known acquaintances of Adams and one of the women was Adams’ girlfriend.

Nobody was shot, but Jarrell said that one of the women received minor abrasions from shrapnel-related impact on the vehicle.

According to Jarrell, one shot hit the door, while a second shot hit the doorpost and a third went through the side window visor.

Jarrell said that Adams ran back inside his home with the gun after firing the shots.

That led to a standoff between Adams and authorities that lasted about an hour until Adams surrendered and was taken into custody without incident.

The standoff blocked off Almond Street and affected traffic on nearby Currahee Street as well.
