Authorities have released more information into what led to the arrests of more than 70 people at a New Year's weekend lingerie-themed birthday party.
According to Cartersville officials, the city's police department responded to Cain Drive in the early morning hours of New Year's Eve after getting reports of shots being fired.
When officers got there, they were met with the smell of marijuana and several people trying to run from the area. After entering the home, officers said they saw weed in plain view and confiscated a semi-automatic weapon. Because of the presence of drugs, a gun and the sheer number of people inside, Cartersville Police notified the Bartow-Cartersville Drug Task Force to assist.
