CARTERSVILLE, Ga. — A conversation about the 10 Commandments led to blows between a man and a woman at a Cartersville motel.
According to a police report, Carolyn Unfricht and Daniel Camarda were arrested on charges of simple battery in connection with a physical altercation that followed a discussion about the Bible and the Commandments. Unfricht was also accused of trespassing, the report says.
Unfricht and Camarda were “highly intoxicated with slurred speech and having some difficulty walking,” authorities said.
A Cartersville police officer responded to the Crown Inn just after 1 a.m. Saturday morning. When the officer entered the room, there was blood on the carpet and a bloody towel in the sink, the report says.
Unfricht told the officer that the conversation “became heated” and she hit Camarda across the face with a Bible she was holding. The blow left a mark on Camarda’s face and broke his glasses.
Unfricht said Camarda “slung her across the room,” where she hit the television and a table, according to the report. She sustained a cut to her head and injured her right foot.
When the officer asked Camarda what happened, he said Unfricht hit him with the Bible, but her injuries were sustained “when she fell down,” the report says.
The pair was arrested and taken to the Cartersville Police Department and then booked into the Bartow County Jail.
