Weird Police Stories: Spitting, Kicking and Personal Space
Read summaries of unusual police stories from Patch sites around Northeast Georgia, including two from Barrow Patch.
An argument over property-line markers between two neighbors got a little too close for comfort. The argument included spitting and profanity, and one of the women said the other “got so close that we touched boob to boob,” according to the police report. One of women, a Hamilton Mill-area homeowner, told police she had hired surveyors to mark the property line, and she believed the neighbor moved the markers. She said the neighbor ended up spitting on her. The neighbor said she didn’t move the markers and explained she didn’t spit on the other woman, but rather sneezed. She said the homeowner thought she had been spit upon and spat back in retaliation. No arrests were made.
From Barrow Patch — Winder police say one of two women suspected of shoplifting at two stores admitted she hid a stolen toothbrush in her bra. Further investigation found the women had shoplifted about $50 worth of goods from Dollar General and Fred’s. They admitted to the crimes. Interestingly, it was the second report from Winder of a woman hiding a stolen item in her underwear. On an earlier date, a woman reportedly took nail clippers out of the package at the same Dollar General and concealed it in her bra. Ouch!
What exactly did he mean? An Athens man arrested on public intoxication charges after being stopped for walking in a roadway, became angry and told police he was going to "go hood." An officer asked if the man was threatening him. He said no.
Gwinnett Police found a man passed out in the front of his Mercedes Benz at a Peachtree Corners intersection just before 2 a.m. Labor Day. The man, who reportedly had glazed eyes and slurred his speech, told police he doesn’t have an alcohol problem, but when he drinks it’s usually to excess.
While answering an unrelated call, Johns Creek Police saw an “obviously intoxicated” man punch another man nearby. After the man was handcuffed, he became irate and tried to spit on the officers, prompting one of the officers to pull the man’s shirt over his head to prevent him from spitting more. During this time, the suspect also kicked two officers. Before being placed in the patrol car, the man urinated on himself while sitting on the sidewalk.
A man made good on his threat to “kick his [expletive]” during a fight outside a Suwanee motel. He and another man got into an argument for an unknown reason, and when the first man made the threat, the second man took a swing and missed, and was then decked. He told police he thought his jaw was broken. Both men were arrested for disorderly conduct.
An angry husband told his wife’s boss at a Buford business he was “going to get him back for this” after he heard that the boss apparently told the woman to “get her head right” during a discussion about her job performance. The boss asked the man if that was a threat. “No, that’s a promise,” the husband said, according to the police report.
