Those are some of the allegations that led Floyd County investigators to charge Paul Brent Howell with felony counts of false imprisonment, and unlawful eavesdropping or surveillance, according to warrants.

Howell, 46, was arrested Thursday following the execution of a search warrant of his 312 Canard Road home.

He is being held in the Floyd County Jail without bond.

He also faces charges of battery, theft by receiving, theft by deception, possession of methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, and possession of a Schedule II controlled substance.

Detectives began an investigation into Howell after the victim came forward with details of the incident, according to Floyd County Sgt. Ojilvia Lom.

The investigation is still ongoing.

According to the warrants, Howell would not let the victim leave his house on Feb. 23.

After trying to push her way through at one point, she finally escaped and hid in a wooded area until she was safely picked up by a relative.

The young woman, who is a Floyd County resident, was attacked by Howell that same day at his residence, police said.

Warrants state Howell shoved the victim onto the floor and pulled her by her hair before repeatedly hitting her head against the floor.

An approximately two-inches in diameter patch of hair was pulled from the victim’s scalp as a result, and she received injuries to her head and arm.

Howell also allegedly used a camera to record the victim without her permission while she was at his residence between Feb. 14 and March 4.

Howell was found with methamphetamine and a controlled substance during Thursday’s search of his home, and a separate investigation uncovered that Howell had possession of and pawned a stolen trailer last November.

Paul Brent Howell, 46, of Rome, charged with false imprisonment of 19-year-old, possession of Methamphetamine

A Rome man was arrested Thursday after a multi-division investigation led to the search of his home and the discovery of drugs, according to Floyd County police.

According to a press release:

Paul Brent Howell, 46, of 312 Canard Road, is charged with false imprisonment; unlawful eavesdropping or surveillance; and battery in connection with a 19-year-old woman.

Howell is also charged with possession of methamphetamine; possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute; possession of a Schedule II controlled substance; theft by receiving; and theft by deception.

Floyd County investigators along with members of the Rome-Floyd Metro Task Force and Floyd County Police patrol division executed a search warrant at Howell’s residence Thursday.

Howell was found with methamphetamine and a controlled substance, and a separate investigation uncovered that Howell had possession of and sold a stolen trailer.

The release stated that the investigation is ongoing.

Lom said late Thursday there is no connection between the investigation and the discovery of human remains off of Everwood Court in the same area last Friday.

She also said there is nothing connecting Howell to the disappearance of Ashley Nycole Jones in February. Jones was last seen on Canard Road walking toward Kingston Highway.
