A 22-year-old woman said that a few months ago she had dated a 20-year-old man. When they broke up, he got mad and busted out the windows of her apartment on Holly Street and the front windshield of her car. The woman described her ex-boyfriend as having a Southern accent, no teeth and being under the influence of drugs.

The woman said she and her ex-boyfriend used to work at McDonald's together until one day the ex-boyfriend decided to steal the cash register.

The 22-year-old said the McDonald's manager took out a warrant on the ex-boyfriend as a result of the incident.

On the day the woman called police, a witness saw the ex-boyfriend driving a U-Haul truck, and the ex-boyfriend ran the truck into the side of the 22-year-old woman's car.

The officer noted in his report, "He had already busted her windshield and promised to get it fixed. When [the 22-year-old] saw her car this morning, all the windows were busted out and the tires were flat ... [the 22-year-old] said she is tired of the [ex-boyfriend] and she is going to take out a warrant on him."

At about 2:20 a.m., an officer was patrolling Smith Street when he saw a black 1988 Chevy Celebrity stop in the middle of the road. The driver, a 40-year-old Norcross man, opened the door, tossed out an electric deep fryer full of grease, closed the door and drove away.

The officer turned on his blue lights and pulled behind the Chevy, but the Chevy kept going. The officer activated his siren and finally pulled over the car on McDaniel Street.

The officer ran the driver's license through a computer check, which revealed that the Norcross man's license had been suspended for failure to pay child support. The driver, who was unusually quiet, was arrested for littering and driving on a suspended license.

At a Wendy's restaurant on Spring Street, a male employee asked a 39-year-old man to leave several times, but the man refused to go. The 39-year-old man was described as a thin albino, with long, curly brown hair and stained teeth. The officer noted that the man had defecated on himself and appeared to be intoxicated. He was arrested and taken to jail.

On Forest Terrace, a 36-year-old woman said she was taking a shower when her roommate, a 21-year-old woman, came into the bathroom, grabbed her, pushed her against the wall, and locked the door.

According to the 36-year-old, the roommate said, "If you want to get out, you'll have to go through me."

The 36-year-old's son, age 14, heard his mother yelling for help, and pushed against the door, forcing it open, so his mother could leave the bathroom.

According to both the mother and son, the roommate said, "I'll slash your tires and hurt your children if you make me leave."

The 36-year-old told police that the roommate was upset because she had asked the roommate to move out. The roommate said the 36-year-old is mad at her only because she caught the 36-year-old in bed with another woman.

The roommate was taken to jail.

A 28-year-old man told police that he had been staying with a woman, age 25-30, in her apartment on Newton Circle for about a month. He told the woman he could not deal with her and was looking for somewhere else to live.

He described his ex-girlfriend as very heavyset, about 280-300 pounds. She has a webbed finger, a tattoo of a Capricorn symbol on her back and a butterfly on her arm.

The man then put some of his belongings at a neighbor's apartment. When he returned to the woman's apartment, she locked the door and refused to let him in to get the rest of his stuff. Another neighbor said earlier that morning, he had seen some of the 28-year-old's belongings in front of the apartment building. But when the 28-year-old went to locate those belongings, all he found was one Lugz boot that belonged to him; the rest of the belongings apparently had been stolen. He also noticed a long new scratch on his red '94 Chevrolet Baretta.
