On the second call, the woman said she is going to kill herself and blow up the 51-year-old's car. Also, the woman asked the 51-year-old to give her a ride to a mental hospital. The caller gave her address in Jonesboro. The 51-year-old said the woman caller was very upset because her brother was killed.

The car rolled down the driveway and hit a utility pole at the edge of the driveway. The rear of the car was damaged.

At 12:15 a.m., an officer responded to a 911 hang-up call on Moreland Avenue. The officer spoke with the caller, who was feeling sick. During this time, the officer saw a 37-year-old woman walk across Wylie Street and pull down her pants, thus "mooning" passersby. The 37-year-old kept walking toward the officer "so when she arrived at my specific location, I arrested her." She was charged with public indecency.

A 19-year-old Marietta man parked his Pontiac Grand Am on State Street. Between 10 p.m. and 1 a.m., someone smeared pizza and pizza sauce all over his car. The 19-year-old said his car was under video surveillance, and the suspects were probably caught on tape. No permanent damage was done to the car.

A 67-year-old woman on Myrtle Street was awakened by a noise in her house. She saw her son, age 32, carrying a bulky sheet and walking down the steps. She called out to her son. "I don't have anything of yours," the son replied. He then left. The woman went back inside and realized her stereo, DVD player and roaster were missing. The son has a key to her home and a drug problem.

A 30-year-old woman lives in an apartment on Henry Thomas Drive. She said witnesses saw another woman sprinkle white powder on the front door of her apartment.

At Hartsfield airport, a 30-year-old Atlanta woman said while she was on an airline flight, a 60-year-old man approached her about having sex.

He said the 30-year-old woman approached him about having sex. He had been drinking on the flight.

A man said he went behind a store on Monroe Drive to relieve himself. While he was standing there, a bald guy walked behind him and threw him to the ground. The man told the bald guy he would give him anything. Give me your money, said the bald guy. The man gave him $40 from his wallet, and the bald man left. The man reported that his trousers were damaged when he was thrown to the ground.

The manager of a fast-food restaurant on Cleveland Avenue said a female employee came into the restaurant and asked to see her schedule. The restaurant was very busy, and the manager told the employee to come back later or call. The female employee got upset and said, "I'm going to have someone take care of you." Then, she left. About an hour later, two men pulled up to the drive-thru window and said, "You disrespected [the female employee]." The driver pointed a pistol at the McDonald's manager and accused him of grabbing the employee's butt. The two men then drove away. Police were called. While police were at the scene, the female employee showed up. She denied involvement in the incident.

On Joseph Lowery Boulevard, a 52-year-old woman said a lady she knows only as "Moonshine" approached her. "You bitch," said Moonshine, who then hit the 52-year-old's face and chest for no apparent reason. Moonshine was described as a tall, skinny woman with short blond hair.

An officer was working an extra job at Grady Hospital. A man walked into the gift shop and put a Daddy Longlegs statue (valued at $34.99) in a plastic bag. He tried to leave the store without paying for the statue. He was charged with shoplifting.
