The supervisor of the EMT unit, a 40-year-old man, told the woman to contact local hospitals and clinics to determine "if they could handle mass casualties and the number they could effectively treat," wrote the reporting officer. The woman made several calls. She told the reporting officer that several people were "freaking out" over the reported incident.
The police report noted that during this time, there were no lookouts, bulletins, alerts or information that she received, through her own admission, as it relates to the bomb threat. Both the man and woman were charged with "transmitting a false public alarm."
A 55-year-old woman on Bell Street said she drank some beer with friends, including a female acquaintance wearing a red hat. The woman in the red hat, who was in her late 30s, bought the beer they were drinking, and took the remaining cans of beer with her when she left.
The next day, the woman in the red hat returned and demanded payment from the 55-year-old woman. She wanted $7 for the two cans of beer the 55-year-old woman drank. The 55-year-old said she didn't give her any money because she didn't ask her to buy the beer. According to the 55-year-old woman, the red-hatted woman grabbed her black leather pouch and said, "Then I will take this case until you pay me and I'm going to mess up your car."
On Pierce Street, a couple flagged down two officers. The woman, 43, said her husband's pit bull attacked her and bit her head. The husband said he and his wife were arguing and she threw some keys and struck him in the face. When he turned around, the dog was grasping his wife by the head. He tried to pull the dog off his wife, but the dog bit his left leg and ran away. The husband found the 8-month-old puppy and brought him home. Both husband and wife refused to go to a hospital and were treated on the scene. The officer's last line in his written report: "Both victims had been consuming alcohol but puppy dog was sober."
A 34-year-old man who works at a restaurant on Peachtree Road said his manager verbally threatened him face-to-face. According to the 34-year-old, the male manager has made comments such as, "I want to rip your face off" and "I'm going to tear your head off and shit down your throat" and "I'm gonna take a wet steamy one all over you."
During the week of Oct. 18-25, the Atlanta Police Department responded to at least 19 calls concerning suspicious letters or substances. Among the reports:
An officer went to a location on Jefferson Street in response to a call about white powder on an envelope. A team from the fire department had triple-bagged the letter. The caller had left the scene without seeking treatment. The reporting officer wrote in his report that the location on Jefferson Street is a food bank, "and the letter being seized is their own in-house stationary that had been stored in their dust-covered attic for one-and-a-half months in an open box."
Officers went to a home on Hilliard Street in response to a suspicious package. The haz-mat team triple-bagged the package and it was sent to the FBI lab. A 56-year-old woman said the package was addressed to her from her son in prison and she noticed a white substance on the outside of the envelope.
Officers went to a location on Peachtree Street and spoke with a 26-year-old woman who said she received an envelope with no return address. Inside was one $5 bill and one $1 bill wrapped in tissue and notepad paper. A haz-mat team found no chemicals in the envelope, triple-bagged it and took it to the FBI lab.
At a post-office on Piedmont Avenue, an officer met with a Secret Service Agent and a postal inspector, who both had in their possession 15 letters addressed to different abortion clinics and family planning clinics. The return address on the envelopes was from the Secret Service on Peachtree Street. All letters were taken to the Joint Terrorism Task Force office. The reporting officer was advised that in the past similar letters have contained a powdery substance.
An officer responded to a post office on Crown Road and spoke with a male employee. According to the report, "He reported to his supervisor that he knew where anthrax was. He took them to the location, but nothing was there. He started acting as if he had a mental problem." He was taken to Grady Hospital by emergency medical technicians.
