A Bartow County man is in jail, accused of threatening to kill someone and cutting a woman's neck during an early-morning domestic incident in the city of White.

Deputies were called to the Kirk Road home about 1:20 a.m. Monday and arrived to find a man running down the road. He said he and the woman with whom he lives heard a noise and went outside to check, according to the Bartow County Sheriff's Office incident report, above.

The male victim said he walked next door and returned home to find Tommy Lamar Tomlinson, 53, on his property, "being irate and arguing with (the woman)."

Tomlinson told the man, "Get the hell out of here," and the woman said to "do what Tommy says, because he possibly has a gun and that (Tomlinson) told her he was going to kill someone tonight," the report says.

As the man left to call 911, he heard what sounded like items in the home being broken, he told police.

When deputies arrived, no one would come to the door, but a male voice said, "Go away."

After numerous attempts by authorities, the woman finally emerged in tears and ran behind a deputy. She said Tomlinson had recently moved out of her home.

The woman told police she spotted Tomlinson outside the house with a flashlight and saw that he had a knife.

As she asked him, "Tommy, is that you?" Tomlinson said, "You know it's me, I have a gun and someone's going to get killed tonight," the woman told police.

Tomlinson then busted porch lights on the front and back of the house and slash all four tires on the male victim's 1998 Ford Ranger, before he and the woman went inside the home.

The two began to argue, and Tomlinson allegedly threw cups and "tapped" the woman's neck and cheeks with one of her knives and his knife, causing a laceration to the left side of her neck.

Tomlinson, who was wanted for failure to appear in Superior Court, stepped outside, showing his hands, and complied with officers, according to the report.

He was charged with aggravated assault and two counts of criminal trespass in connection with the Family Violence incident.

Kirk Road residents have a White mailing address, but it is not "in" the City of White. In fact, it's several miles away back toward Folsom.
