Harassment, endangerment charged following pair of Rome incidents


A 34-year-old man is facing  charges for harassing a woman on two different occasions in Rome on Wednesday, according to the Rome Police Department.

Police said Earl J. Wright III, of Rome, was in a domestic dispute with the woman on West Dominick Street around 1:49 a.m.

Police said Wright shoved the woman to the ground and then pressed his face into her face, causing her braces to cut her mouth.

Police said Wright fled the scene and, when officers responded, the victim did not want to cooperate.

Then, at 12:29 p.m. Wednesday, police said they were called for a domestic in progress in the 200 block of N. George St. involving Wright and the same woman.

Police said Wright had grabbed the woman by the face, squeezing her cheeks, while yelling at her.

Police said they arrived to find Wright shouting at the woman from a second story window as she and a child left the residence.

Police said the woman was then willing to cooperate on both incidents.

Wright is charged with two counts of second-degree harassment and one count of endangering the welfare of a child, police stated.

He is scheduled to appear in Rome City Court, according to police.
