Rome man found with warrants, drugs after seat belt and handicap parking violation in Floyd County

According to a Floyd County Police Department incident report, On September 23rd, 2022, at 5:46 PM, K-9 Lt. Hovers observed a dark-colored vehicle turn from a gravel road and onto South 1st toward Park Avenue. Lt. Hovers reported, “The driver of the vehicle appeared to be a black male (later identified as Fredrick Undreau Woods Jr., 30, of Rome) and not to wear his seat belt. At this time, [I] turned around, and while attempting to catch up to the vehicle, [I] observed it making an abrupt turn onto Park and then into the parking lot of the Family Dollar store. The driver of the vehicle seemed to be so rushed (to get away from me) that he double parked into a handicapped space. At this time, [I] was able to pull up behind him as he was getting out of his vehicle and ordered him to stop. [I] approached his vehicle, explained the reason he was being stopped, and asked for his license. During my contact, he appeared to be very nervous (shaky) and was being very confrontational.” After further investigation, it was learned that Fredrick had warrants for child support and possession of dangerous drugs. K-9 Lex was then deployed and conducted a free air sniff around the outer area of the vehicle in question. During his sniff, Lex alerted at the driver’s side door. During the search, several pills and marijuana were located. Fredrick was booked into the Floyd County Jail, charged with the warrants, parked in a handicapped space, safety belts, drugs not in original container, space, and possession of a schedule IV.
