On 11/27/2022 at approximately 01:18 hours, I, Officer Burchett while employed by the Adairsville Police Department, was dispatched to [300 BLOCK] Rail Drive in reference to multiple 911 hang up calls where a female was heard screaming loudly before the call disconnected. Upon arrival I approached the front door of the residence where I heard a male shouting loudly and I also heard a female screaming loudly as if in pain or anguish.

I then knocked loudly on the front door twice and announced myself loudly. I requested for dispatch to step up the deputies that were en route to assist with the domestic disturbance. The male subject then opened the front door and requested that I step inside the residence. I then asked the male subject to step out onto the front porch in order to separate the male and female.

The male subject, later identified as Mr. Wayndott Sarju, then stepped out of the residence. I detected the strong odor of alcohol coming from his person. I asked Mr. Sarju what was happening inside the residence between the female and himself and he answered that he and his wife were fighting about an incident that took place with his family over Thanksgiving and because his wife wasn’t caring about his son.

A short time later, the deputies arrived at the residence and I asked them to speak to Mr. Sarju while I entered the residence to speak to Mr. Sarju’s wife. I then asked Mr. Sarju to have a seat on a bench on the front porch due to Mr. Sarju’s aggressive behavior. Mr. Sarju refused to have a seat and he attempted to enter the residence after being told to have a seat.

I then grabbed Mr. Sarju’s arm and wrist and placed him on the bench and ordered him to remain seated on the bench. Once seated I then entered the residence to speak to Mr. Sarju’s wife. The female identified herself as [VICTIM #1] and she stated that Mr. Sarju had been screaming and yelling and cursing at her so she attempted to call 911 to report the domestic disturbance.

[VICTIM #1] stated that Mr. Sarju then pushed her and put his hands over her mouth to prevent her from talking to 911. [VICTIM #1] stated she attempted to call 911 several times before Mr. Sarju finally grabbed her Iphone 13 Pro out her of hands forcefully and intentionally threw it onto the floor damaging the cell phone to prevent further 911 calls being made by [VICTIM #1].

[VICTIM #1] stated that Mr. Sarju had been drinking heavily and that he had consumed cocaine. I then followed [VICTIM #1] to a room downstairs in the residence where she presented her damaged Iphone 13 Pro. I observed that the screen was severely shattered. [VICTIM #1] stated that the value was approximately $1400.00.

I then approached Mr. Sarju and requested for him to stand up and to turn around and to place his hands behind his back. Mr. Sarju hesitantly stood up and turned around and placed his hands behind his back but then started resisting and repeatedly asked why he was being arrested. I ordered Mr. Sarju to place his hands behind his back and I advised him that I would explain the charges to him after I restrained him.

Mr. Sarju continued to resist so myself and the deputy placed Mr. Sarju’s hands together behind his back and I placed Mr. Sarju into hand restraints and double locked them to prevent over tightening. I then explained the charges that I would be taking to Mr. Sarju and then placed him into the rear seat of my patrol vehicle.

I then returned to [VICTIM #1] and obtained her information and the children’s information. [VICTIM #1]’s son then provided his witness statement and he stated that he mostly just heard the yelling and his mother screaming and that he did not see much. I then notified [VICTIM #1] that her husband was under arrest and that he would be at the Bartow County Jail. I also advised [VICTIM #1] that I would be calling DFACS to make a report of the incident due to the children witnessing the incident.

I then transported Mr. Sarju to the Bartow County Jail where he was released to the jail staff without further incident.
