An accused child molester allegedly slashed his neck in the main entrance of the Bartow County courthouse Tuesday afternoon.

And deputies said they had to shoot him with a Taser in order to restrain him.

The incident happened around 12:40 p.m. when Mr. Jamie Lamar Green walked into the main entrance on Cherokee Avenue, according to the Bartow County Sheriff’s Office.

Prior to walking through the security checkpoint, the 41-year-old Cartersville man allegedly pulled out a knife and cut his own neck, Sheriff Clark Millsap said.

“Deputies manning the security checkpoint immediately challenged Green and ultimately shot him once with a Taser before taking control of him,” Sheriff Millsap said.

Mr. Green was rushed to a hospital for a serious injury to his neck, the sheriff said. His condition was unknown Wednesday.

Mr. Green was at the courthouse to answer to court hearings on a May 30, 2012 arrest in Bartow County for aggravated child molestation, child molestation, and enticing a child for indecent purposes.

No one other than Mr. Green was injured during the incident.
