Fleeing doesn't quite work out

GRILLMASTER – A man from Florida, driving an older white school bus, stole several cheap grills from a Dollar General in Lyons. He led police on a merry low-speed chase into Candler County, refusing to stop, crossing the median on the interstate several times before state troopers blew his tires out with well-placed rifle shots. He faces shoplifting, fleeing/eluding charges and a host of other traffic offenses.

 

DOUBLE TROUBLE – A man beat the driver of a car he was in, striking him in the back of the head, angry because the driver refused to take him to Atlanta. The driver wrecked, but the offender continued the attack, hitting him with the handle of a machete and taking his car. After being caught, the offender wasn’t done; he attacked another inmate in the jail.

 

FACEBOOK, AGAIN – A citizen reported receiving weird Facebook messages from someone he doesn’t know personally who claimed to be the account holder’s mother. The alleged mother was currently in the county jail and shouldn’t have been able to be on Facebook.

 

OOH THAT SMELL – An officer who made a traffic stop on the Statesboro bypass reported he “could smell the odor of an alcoholic beverage and green marijuana” emanating from the apparent party vehicle. That made him investigate further, and he found the offending marijuana, leading to the driver’s arrest.

 

TAKE ME TO JAIL, PLEASE –  An Old Register Way man asked a deputy to “take me to the county (jail)” to be taken to jail where he could “wait out his court date” because of two men who came to his house regarding a previous incident at a club. When the deputy told him he could not take him to jail because there were no warrants on him, the man repeated it “would be best if he went to the county.” He agreed to stay in his house and call 911 if he felt he was in danger.

 

TEMPTING FATE – A woman with an active probation warrant was arrested when she came to visit an inmate.

 

HE’S MY MAN – Two women at a Highway 80 East location fought after one came to the other’s house to pick up mail and became angry when the complainant talked to the visitor’s “man.”  The two started fighting, ending with one woman having scratches and an apparent bite mark.
