People with Issues
7100 block of Peachtree Dunwoody Road 30328 – On April 12, a man called the cops because his house guest would not leave. The officers found the man in bed. They woke him and in doing so, he became angry and began to curse at the officers. He told them, between his cursing rants, that he had not been told to leave. He continued to curse and then reached into a book bag. This was not good because the officer’s first response is that he may be going into the bag to get a gun or other weapon. They stopped him and settled him down a bit by telling him that if he continued yelling and cursing, he would go to jail. He eventually told the officers that the complainant had injured him the night before (pushed him) and his ankle was hurt. He did not call the police or an EMS for his injury because “I didn’t want the police in my personal life.” He admitted he had been up all night drinking. He was given a ride to the nearby Marta station and let go.
