A Floyd County man was arrested last week after he allegedly stalked a worker with the Division of Family and Children Services, officials said.

Joshua Brandon Morrison of Rome is accused of following his case worker to a home on South Harrison Road on Nov. 22, according to a police report.

The 30-year-old told the woman’s husband that he wanted to know “why she took his kids away,” police wrote in the report.

The husband told Morrison to leave the property, which was not the couple’s residence. Police said the man believed Morrison followed his wife to the house.

Earlier that day, two DFCS workers took Morrison’s children from the babysitter’s house and the DFCS worker had been in contact with Morrison’s wife about them.

Morrison was acting in more of an aggressive manner than respectful, the report states.

The case worker “was very scared, crying and shaking” while the officer was on the scene, the report states. 

Morrison was arrested on a stalking charge.
