I have officially de-friended Cartersville Uncut, and will not watch them on local cable ever again. Reason being, one of the contributors David Paul was arrested for loitering over the weekend. As the story reads, he was observed to be drunk in public and loitering in an apartment parking lot waiting for a ride. What Mr. Paul does with his own time is his business, but he needs to also take into account that he is out and about promoting business, civic activities, and people in the Cartersville community. Do we really want a citizen like him representing our community? I was also disappointed to see how this was handled on CU, as if it were a joke and no big deal. It is a big deal when an adult male can't handle alcohol, doesn't know where he is, and has to be arrested to "dry-out" in the drunk tank. Cartersville Uncut loves to stir it up on their facebook page, but when it comes to their own dirt they sweep in under the rug. SAD is all I can say........

What I meant by that was that they laugh it off, and make it a joke. He should have made a public statement about it, rather than hiding behind the joke they claim it is.

“All you folks are crazy!”

Funny police report, isn't it? What is not funny is how Deanna is trying to excuse him by asking hasn't everybody once or twice woken up in the bushes and not known how you got there?

No we haven't, Deanna.

Wow. Clear by the above posts that Uncut has enemies.

Nope, not enemies.. Just citizens who don't find what happened humerous. Damage control that was not at all appropriate.

Come on - the guy was drunk and hiding in the bushes next to a playground in an apartment complex at 3:45 AM! He and Cartersville Uncut should have handled this professionally and issued an apology to the community. Their show is toast! I recommend calling any business that advertises with them and letting them know how you feel about it.

So David Paul drinks, and had to pay a price. He wasn't driving and this arrest does not effect his ability to deliver a product. Tee-totalling is not a requirement to produce Uncut. Watch it or not. Your choice

Proof? Read the police report. It's all over facebook. I agree that there shold have been a public apology or something of that nature. I defriended them a long time ago.

Let's not get carried away. This isn't Oprah. This is a guy with a Facebook page and a show on local cable access. Not exactly a multimedia magnate that needs to release a prepared statement.

The police report mentioned he(DP) was "dropped off" at the front of the complex by 2 friends so they could take care of business.... wth does that mean? Were they going to purchase drugs?

Or was he stalking someone who lives there and was caught hiding when he saw headlights?

Fishy, and weird!

In the report is says DP had a 'moderate odor of alcohol' on his breath. There was no mention of being drunk in the report. DP even refused further conversation with the officer at one point. There is definitely more to this story. Who was he spying on and why? Fishy, and weird to say the least.

The report also said his eyes were bloodshot and glassy, and he was unsteady on his feet.

Just sounds like everybody is being misdirected possibly. When we think 'drunk' we don't look any further.

All I can say is that I think it is very strange to be dropped off at an apartment complex @ 3:45am and then hide in the bushes. Like the above comment said, what type of business takes place at that hour other than bad business. Its true they are no Oprah, but they are a reflection on this community. If this had happened to a local public official or civic leader the public would be asking for their resignation. If the citizens of Bartow county want to see our community prosper and be taken seriously then we need to consider who we advertise with, support and do business with.

That's fine. Let the businesses and consumers speak with their wallets. His actions are not a reflection on this commnunity anymore than your's or mine are (assuming, as you mentioned, that you're not an elected official). Temper the outrage a little is all I'm saying.
