FLOYD COUNTY JAIL RECORDS

A 45-year old Rome man was jailed Thursday on misdemeanor and felony counts of exploitation or intimidation of the elderly.

According to Floyd County Jail records, Jimmy Durand Jordan Jr. of a Woodward Street address would not let a 65-year old man into his own Abrams Road home.

The victim, who is an amputee, was forced to use his wheelchair to make his way to the front door where he fell.

Jordan then allegedly prevented medical aid by blocking the doorway and not allowing his mother to tend to the victim.

He also reportedly ignored lawful commands to leave the property.
