Slumped people in car leads to drug arrest

On May 24, at about 2 a.m., an officer was patrolling the 8000 block of Roswell Road and noticed a car in a parking lot with the driver and passenger slumped over the dashboard. The officer went to the vehicle and the female in the car, behind the wheel, lifted her head. She and the passenger identified themselves as Christy Borden and Gregory Copeland.

Borden’s pupils were dilated and her speech slurred, the officer stated in a report. The officer asked if they were under the influence of drugs and both said no.

The officer asked to search their car and Borden consented. The officer found three metal spoons in the glove compartment and two needles in the backseat. The officer looked inside Borden’s purse in the backseat and found a small clear plastic bag with a Team Marlboro log on it and containing several pieces of what was determined to be crystal methamphetamine.

Borden told the officer she was unsure how the drugs ended up in her bag and accused Copeland, who she said she had just met, with putting the drugs in her purse. Copeland said Borden was lying about just meeting him and told the officer he met Borden a few days ago and they had planned on buying drugs that night and “getting high,” states the report. About 1.2 grams of crystal meth was confiscated.

Borden, of Pilgrim Way in Atlanta, was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance. Her 2014 Nissan Sentra was towed.

Man fires gun in hotel room, damages TV

On May 31, at about 1 p.m., Sandy Springs police responded to a call at the Hilton Hotel on Peachtree Dunwoody Road about a bullet hole found in the bottom of a 49-inch LG LED flat screen TV in one of the rooms. Housekeeping staff also found a 9 mm round in the room.

According to staff, there were between four and five people in and out of the room from on May 27 and 28. The hotel staff said they didn’t want to press charges but only wanted to document the damage to the TV, according to a police report.

The man staying in the room offered to pay for the TV. No charges were filed.

Man dies in auto crash on Ga. 400

At about midnight on May 31, police were called to a traffic fatality on Ga. 400 Southbound just south of Mount Vernon Highway, where the driver ran off the road and crashed into an overhead sign support.

The driver, Timothy Bartlett, had taken the car, a Chevrolet Malibu, from its owner who lives in College Park without permission to go to Cumming to visit a friend, according to a police report.

Bartlett was traveling about 65 mph on Ga. 400 when, a witness said, he veered off the road, drove into the grass and then struck the overhead sign support. He was dead at the scene. Police reported there were no skid marks or any indication of evasive maneuvering by the vehicle.

The victim’s grandmother, from Gainesville, Ga., was informed of her grandson’s death.
