The Blotter October 21 2000
A 33-year-old woman in a ground-level apartment on Lakewood Avenue told police that she has caught a female acquaintance urinating in her yard and throwing sanitary napkins into her yard. The 33-year-old said she had spoken to the female acquaintance several times about this. The female acquaintance is between the ages of 40-45. ?
The 33-year-old believes that the female acquaintance believes that no one lives in the 33-year-old's apartment, and that's why she continues to urinate in the yard and throw sanitary napkins into the yard. ?
Police told the 33-year-old to take out a warrant for the female acquaintance's arrest.
An officer received a call about a missing wheelchair on Northside Drive. The caller was a 49-year-old man who lives on Boulevard. ?
The 49-year-old said he had been visiting a friend on Kennedy Street when his friend — nicknamed "Bowlegs" — took his wheelchair. ?
The 49-year-old then asked the officer for a ride across town. ?
The officer explained that he could look for the man's wheelchair, but he could not "ride him across town," the officer wrote in his report.?
The officer wrote, "The [49-year-old] got into my police car and we checked all the areas on my beat he felt his wheelchair may have been, (and most of these areas were known drug locations). When I asked [the 49-year-old] how he knew so many drug locations, his story began to change." ?
The officer's report did not indicate exactly how the man's story began to change, but the report noted that another man — at the intersection of Jones and Walnut streets — told the officer that the 49-year-old "gave Bowlegs the wheelchair."?
The officer eventually took the 49-year-old back to Northside Drive, where he had picked the man up. ?
At Hartsfield Airport a 21-year-old female gate attendant said an intoxicated 35-year-old woman approached her ticket counter. The gate attendant told the woman that she would have to take a later flight. ?
The 35-year-old became loud and shouted, "I was booked for this flight and you going to put me on my flight."?
A police officer showed up. The gate attendant told the officer that she had denied the 35-year-old's flight and wanted her to leave the concourse. ?
The 35-year-old, who has short black hair and is from Durham, N.C., refused to leave. She was then arrested for disorderly conduct. ?
An officer reported that a 63-year-old man was in the pre-trial jail center on Peachtree Street when the 63-year-old refused to listen to a police officer's commands to "stay on the wall." "The subject was uncuffed and told three times to stay against the wall. I had my back to the subject and somebody behind me yelled for me to look out. I turned and the subject was reaching for my gun. I then struggled with the subject and pushed him up against the wall. ?
The subject's head banged against the wall. The subject was still conscious and had a small cut on his head." ?
The 63-year-old was charged with obstruction and taken to Grady Hospital.?
A sergeant was notified of the situation. ?
An officer responded to a fight call on Paines Avenue. Upon arrival, he spoke with a 39-year-old man, who said his 25-year-old live-in girlfriend had "attacked and scratched" him. The girlfriend was wearing a green army jacket, black shorts and a white shirt. She appeared to be under the influence of drugs because she was "twisting and turning, unable to remain still," according to the officer's report. ?
The boyfriend said his girlfriend was six-months pregnant with his child and continuously smoking crack. He said they got into an argument about her drug problem and she jumped on him and scratched his neck and arm. ?
The girlfriend admitted to attacking her boyfriend, but said it was a defensive method. A few minutes later, she said she had been struck on the head with a liquor bottle. ?
The officer saw no visible signs of injury on the girlfriend, but due to her pregnancy and drug intake she was taken to Grady Hospital — after being arrested for battery and giving police a false name.
