Woman assaults Dalton PD officer and threatens to kill parents during domestic

According to a Dalton Police Department incident report, On October 11th, 2022, at 12:17 PM, Officer Black responded regarding a verbal domestic in progress. While attempting to gather information about what had happened, a female subject, later identified as Cassandra Sutton/Quintero, 32, of Dalton, came outside of the residence and was extremely irate. Cassandra is the victim’s daughter, who the officer was attempting to speak to. Officer Black reported, “Cassandra continued to be irate and would not allow me to conduct my investigation. Cassandra began stating she told her mom and her father that she was going to kill them for taking her kids away. [I] asked Cassandra, for clarification, that she was wanting to kill her parents and told them she was going to kill them for taking her kids away and she stated yes. [I] then attempted to speak to the victim again, and when [I] did, Cassandra continued to yell at both her parents and would not allow me to continue my investigation.” The officer asked Cassandra if she was going to tell him how to do his job because he needed to continue with the investigation. Cassandra responded with, “You need it motherf***er”. That’s when Cassandra raised her left hand, which was in a closed fist, and attempted to assault the officer with her closed fist. The officer was able to avoid the punch and took Cassandra to the ground. Officer Black reported, “While [I] was attempting to call out on the radio for help, Cassandra was grabbing at my radio and also scratched my neck at this time.” Cassandra continued to still resist arrest until additional units arrived. Cassandra was transported to the Whitfield County Jail and charged with felony obstruction, battery (law enforcement), and terroristic threats.
