WHOLE LOTTO TROUBLE: An officer responded to a call on Conley Street. A 50-year-old man known as "Johnny Lee Outlaw" said he was walking to cash his winning lottery tickets when two men approached him. Johnny Lee Outlaw said one man got his attention by saying, "Hey dad."

"Mr. Outlaw said that people in the neighborhood would call him 'dad' by nickname," the officer wrote. "Mr. Outlaw said he told the two [men] that he was going to the store to cash in his lottery tickets." Mr. Outlaw said the tall man wanted to see his lottery tickets – but he said no. At that moment, the tall man reportedly tried to snatch the lottery tickets out of Mr. Outlaw's hands, the officer wrote. "While Mr. Outlaw was trying to flee to safety, he said he tripped and fell."

Mr. Outlaw said while he was on the ground, the two men beat him with belts and stole his lottery tickets. He said the men fled on foot.

According to the police report, Mr. Outlaw was out two lottery tickets worth $35 total and three lottery tickets worth $1 each.
