Drunk Dalton man arrested on several felonies after attempting home invasion and damaging vehicles
According to a Whitfield County Sheriff's Office incident report, on Tuesday, April 22nd, 2020, at approximately 1:04 AM, deputies were dispatched to an address on Brooker Drive in reference to an unknown male trying to make entry into the residence. The male was also causing damage to vehicles in the driveway. When a deputy arrived, he observed a male, later identified as James Charles Krincek, 31 of Dalton, standing in the driveway near a Nissan Altima. The deputy gave commands to the male to show his hands using his public announcement speaker. Krincek moved his hands into view, giving the deputy the middle finger with both hands. The deputy exited his patrol vehicle and drew his taser, training it on Krincek. The deputy gave Krincek commands to go to the ground, which he complied with. The deputy took Krincek into custody. Deputy Millsaps could smell a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from Krincek's person. The deputy attempted to get Krincek to tell his name, but Krincek's speech was slurred and not comprehensible. After more deputies arrived, the reporting deputy spoke with the homeowners who stated that Krincek began beating heavily on their door, screaming and cursing. The homeowner advised that he yelled through the door that Krincek was at the wrong house. The homeowner advised that Krincek was calling him a "pussy" and believed that Krincek was trying to cause him and his wife physical harm. The deputy observed damage to the door in a square shape. The shape and size of the damage were consistent with the tile next to the door being used to strike the door. The homeowner advised Krincek began damaging the vehicles in his driveway when he could not make entry into the residence. The deputy observed damage to the driver's front window of the Nissan that Krincek was standing beside when he arrived. There was another concrete tile beside the Nissan, which appeared to be used to hit the window. The deputy was advised by the Lieutenant to transport Krincek to the Whitfield County jail while she finished collecting information from the scene. Krincek provided a breath sample to jail staff on a hand-held alcohol sensor, which showed a breath/ alcohol concentration of 0.109 grams. The Lt. advised that there was more damage on the passenger side of the homeowner's 2019 Dodge Ram from the tail light to the rear door. The Lt. advised that the driver rear quarter panel was damaged on the homeowner's 2017 Ford Escape. The repair costs for the Dodge Ram and Ford Escape were not determined at the time of this report. Krincek was charged with criminal attempt to commit a felony (home invasion 1st degree), criminal damage to property 2nd degree (damage over $500), simple assault, public drunkeness, disorderly conduct. As of Friday evening Krincek was still in the Whitfield County Jail with no bond.
