Cedartown police records state that Scottie Worfford, Jr., 22, was arrested on felony charges of possession of marijuana and possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute and a misdemeanor charge of obstruction of an officer. His sister, Tiffany Worfford, 20, was arrested on misdemeanor charges of resisting a police officer and disorderly conduct.
According to reports, while patrolling Pace and Park streets, an officer noticed Scottie Worfford standing in the middle of the roadway. Reports stated that police recognized what appeared to be a drug transaction, because they saw him turn away from the vehicle and place some money in his pocket.
When the officer stopped his patrol unit, Worfford began to run, reports stated. The officer caught him on the railroad tracks near Gibson street.
Police arrested Worfford and found a undetermined amount of money in his pocket, reports said. The officer also found a black baggie containing three smaller baggies of suspected marijuana.
According to reports, while searching the victim, his sister arrived on the scene and walked toward Worfford and the officer. The officer advised her to stop and wait until the search was concluded. Tiffany Worfford ignored the command and continued walking toward them, reports said.
The officer advised her again and she stated, “she would walk up to (them) if she wanted to,” according to reports.
Scottie told her to retrieve his jacket that still at the original incident location. The officer advised her not to touch the jacket as it was part of an investigation.
The officer turned Scottie over to another officer and approached Tiffany to inform her that she too was under arrest for disorderly conduct.
The officer placed one hand in the restraint at which point Tiffany started to resist, reports said.
The officer advised her to stop resisting, and he was able to get her other hand in the restraint.
Both subjects were taken to the Cedartown Police Department for booking procedures.
Reports did not indicate if anything was found in the jacket at the original incident location.
