Chattooga County sheriff's officials say both officers were taken to area hospitals early Sunday morning. Authorities say they were treated and released the same day.

Authorities say a 20-year-old Rome man was taken into custody and faces several charges, including three counts of aggravated assault on a police officer.

Summerville is about 85 miles northwest of Atlanta.
