A repossessor was shot at on Tuesday while repossessing a vehicle around 9:40 p.m.
According to a police report, a Bartow County Sheriff’s officer was dispatched to 36 Pine Ridge Road in White after receiving a call about shots being fired.
The officer met with the repossessor, Brett Smith, who was at the location to repossess a vehicle.
Smith explained that he exited his truck to get better cell phone reception and heard a shot over his right shoulder and a man yelling in his direction.
Smith said that he turned around to see Donald Liotta on the balcony of the house next door with a shotgun.
Smith said that he tried to explain to Liotta why he was there and that he was doing his job.
He said that when he got to the house, Liotta told him that if he didn’t leave he was going to shoot and kill him.
The officer had a conversation with Liotta in which he confirmed that he did shoot a shotgun at Smith and threaten him. Liotta claimed to have only been shooting in the direction of the woods to scare Smith, and not at Smith directly.
Liotta was arrested, charged with making terroristic threats and transported to Bartow County Jail.
