The Blotter March 14 2001

A 34-year-old man parked his white Mercedes in the parking deck of City Hall East on Ponce de Leon Avenue.
When he returned to his car, he noticed a large quantity of saliva dripping from his driver's side door handle.
Under the windshield, there was a note, which read: "You think you bad [racial slur]."
The 34-year-old said he didn't have any idea who left the message.
Around 5:40 p.m., a 27-year-old man returned to his residence on Moreland Avenue and noticed that his bedroom had been ransacked. As he checked the house, the man discovered that his television, boom box and telephone were missing.
He then noticed that the front door was broken. At that point, he called police.
None of the man's roommates reported any missing items.
"The perpetrators did defecate in the toilet and not flush," the officer noted in the report.
An officer responded to a call about a naked man knocking on doors on Catherine Street.
The officer spoke with the man, age 28, who said while he was walking to a bus stop on Ashby Street, a man and a woman pulled alongside him in a car.
The male suspect pointed a gun at him and forced him into the car. The female suspect drove, while the male suspect forced the victim to remove his clothes and instructed the victim to give up everything.
The suspects took the man's clothes, shoes, wallet, identification and $30. The man was forced out of the car on Catherine Street where he knocked on doors, and eventually received some clothes from a resident.
At 12:40 a.m., an officer saw a Mazda MX-6 parked in the fire lane at the Kroger on Moreland Avenue. The officer gave a ticket to the owner of the car, a 26-year-old man.
The owner yelled "fuck" four times in a row.
The officer went back inside Kroger. Five minutes later, the owner came inside and asked for the officer's name and badge number. The officer gave him both and the owner left Kroger.
Ten minutes later, the officer walked outside Kroger, and noticed that the Mazda was still in the fire lane. He asked the owner why he refused to move his car.
"I'm not finished with what I'm doing," said the owner, who was sitting in the fire lane, eating fruit with a friend.
The officer promptly wrote another ticket for failure to obey and impounded the car.
A 52-year-old woman said she works part time at her husband's medical office on East Shadowlawn Avenue. The wife told an intern — a 23-year-old woman — to file some medical records. Later, the wife discovered that the intern was putting the medical records in the trash. The wife said the intern also took checks belonging to patients and the insurance company.
The wife confronted the intern. The intern said it wasn't her job to file.
The wife said she left some deposit slips and checks on her desk, and then went to the restroom. When she returned, half of the checks were gone — and so was the intern.
A 55-year-old man in an apartment on Stokes Avenue said his neighbor, a 28-year-old woman, has been a continual problem.
In the latest incident, she said, "I'll fuck you up. I'll kill you. You ain't gonna get no sleep. You don't know who you are fucking with."
The man said earlier she had asked him for $5. He gave her $10, because he owed her $5. When he asked for his money back, an argument started over the money and a lighter of his that she had. The woman's roommate joined the fight, and jammed a lighter — not his — into the man's stomach.
When she spoke with police, the neighbor was extremely drunk. She denied making the threats. She said the man was cooking in the kitchen, and she tasted his eggs and he threw eggs all over the kitchen. She added that the man said, "I just want to fuck you, my dick is hard."
No arrests were made. The officer said the landlord must obtain an eviction notice to get the woman out of the house.
