On a recent Sunday morning, a 45-year-old woman said she spotted her 27-year-old boyfriend talking to another woman outside of a house on Boulevard. The woman said she went over and sat on a nearby wall, and her boyfriend grabbed her by the arm and tried to pull her into the house with one hand, while holding up his baggy pants with the other, an officer noted.
When the boyfriend went into the house to change pants, the woman ran inside a nearby church. Her boyfriend followed her into the church and tried to choke her. She called 911 and her boyfriend ran away.
TRIM THE HEDGES: One Saturday night, a woman allegedly hopped into an unmarked police car near Cleveland Avenue. "What's up?" the undercover cop asked. "Me," she replied. The cop asked her what she was good at. "Everything," she replied, adding that "head" and "pussy" each cost $10 cash. Also, she said, "If you want to fuck me in the ass, it will cost an extra $10 because it hurts."
According to the police report, they allegedly agreed on pussy for $10. Before anything happened, the cop told the woman she was being put out of the car because "she had a lot of hair on the pussy." Backup units took the woman, 32, to jail on a prostitution charge.
IN THE BUFF: A woman was arrested on Hardee Street this month. "She was completely naked," an officer wrote. The woman said she got into an argument with someone who lives nearby. She also stated that she was changing in the backyard, but had walked into the front yard when police arrived. The woman went to jail on an indecency charge.
REPEAT OFFENDER: An officer spotted a white van on I-75. According to the officer's notes, "the van began to change lanes without signaling" and accelerated to 85 mph. The driver "cut recklessly between vehicles with very little space between them. I then observed him to begin to aggressively tailgate a maroon Lincoln [Town Car]." The officer stopped the van, and spoke with the driver, a 54-year-old Duluth man. "[He] stated he was not going to give me his driver's license because he didn't believe I was a police officer." The man said he would drive away because he knew he hadn't done anything wrong, so the officer grabbed the key from the ignition. "I then checked his driver's record ... and found he had at least 30 prior traffic violations," including seven separate speeding convictions in Avondale Estates, Union City, Coweta County, Duluth, Doraville, Alabama and South Carolina.
RISKY FRIENDSHIP: On Fairburn Road, a 24-year-old woman said her friend entered her apartment with her permission to get some food. She said she asked the friend to make her kids some food while he was in the kitchen, and he got upset. She said they argued and he tried to burn her face with a lit cigarette, but, according to the police report, she had no visible burn marks.
She said her friend also grabbed a frying pan and hit her face. "She had a very small laceration on the bridge of her nose and some slight swelling to her face," the officer noted. She said her friend left, and she chased after him with a butcher knife, but she lost him. She said her friend is a homeless man known as "Charcela."
Joy Ride: A 46-year-old man said a friend threatened him. (The friend is also a former coworker.) When an officer arrived, the man produced a "long list of threatening text messages from his former coworker and friend." The man said two years ago, he was driving his friend's car, when he got arrested for driving with a suspended license — the car was impounded. "The vehicle was never gotten out of impound and eventually was auctioned off. The suspect feels that he should be compensated for the car and told the man he owed him $2,500 for the car," the officer wrote. "The suspect indicated that if he was not paid, he would become violent with [the man]."
CUT TO THE CHASE: On Northside Drive, a 35-year-old man said another man with a machete walked up and demanded money. He said the other man was swinging the machete violently. The first man had no idea why the other man would think that he owed him anything — but he gave him $60.
