The Blotter March 21 2001

An 18-year-old man said a man approached him with a shotgun and asked if he knew where his girlfriend's gold bottom teeth were because she left them at the Mrs. Winner's at the corner of Westview Drive and Ashby Street.

The 18-year-old works at that Mrs. Winner's. He had found some gold teeth on a table and placed them on a counter, but someone else picked up the teeth.

The 18-year-old said he is allergic to gold and he didn't have the gold. The second man said if he didn't have the gold by tomorrow, he was going to kill him.

Police advised the 18-year-old to take out a warrant.

At 5:50 p.m. at the intersection of Dolphin Drive and Cascade Road, an undercover officer was flagged down by a heavyset 36-year-old woman wearing blue sweatpants and a green shirt.

The woman motioned for the undercover officer to pull into a parking lot. She then got into the car and said she was a working girl looking for fun.

The officer wrote in his report, "I stated that I was looking for fun also. [The woman] asked if I could spend $20. I asked what was $20 for. [The woman] stated that the $20 would get me pussy and knowledge. I asked what knowledge was. [The woman] said knowledge was her term for 'head.' "

The officer drove the woman to a takedown location. When the woman saw the patrol cars, she said she would fight police. She stiffened her body and kicked, but still was arrested for prostitution.

A 50-year-old woman walked into a sports bar/restaurant on Marietta Street and ordered a Reuben sandwich and four mixed drinks. She consumed both the sandwich and the drinks.

When it came time to pay the $27.95 bill, the woman told the manager that she had no money to pay. The manager then called police.

When an officer arrived, the woman was still seated in a booth with her drink. The officer asked her if she had any money to pay the bill. She said no.

The officer asked her why she ordered the items if she couldn't pay.

"She didn't respond," wrote the officer in his report. "I then asked her if she needed the food."

The woman replied, "No, I needed a drink."

A man walked into a convenience store on Bankhead Highway and asked for a pack of cigarettes in a Southern accent.

When the cashier informed him of the price, the man got angry and stated how much he paid for cigarettes on the other side of town. He then reached over the counter and slapped the cashier. The cashier activated the security lock so the man couldn't leave the store.

The man pulled out a black handgun and threatened to shoot the cashier. Then, he busted open the front door and left the store. Once outside, the man continued to wave the handgun until he left in a Chevy Impala.

At a bar on Peachtree Center Avenue, a 27-year-old bartender said an intoxicated man slapped him in the face while trying to hit his manager from behind the bar.

According to the police report, the man "was arrested for simply (sic) battery."

In the two other sections of the report in which the officer describes charges, the charge was listed as "simply battery."

An officer responded to a traffic accident on Plaza Lane involving a red pickup truck. En route to the accident scene, the officer saw a red pickup truck driving away. He stopped the truck. The driver, a 58-year-old man, said he hit a pole and was driving to a pay phone to call police.

The driver was barely able to stand up. The officer asked if he had been drinking.

The driver said, "Yes, but I only had four beers and two shots."

He was arrested for DUI. The man also had a beer inside his coat pocket.

A twentysomething woman ordered some Chinese food to be delivered to her home on Verbena Street. When the food arrived, she found a hair in the rice.

The woman called the restaurant and requested more rice. The deliveryman brought more rice to the apartment, but the woman and the deliveryman then got into a verbal dispute at the door.

The woman said the delivery man pulled a gun on her, then fled the scene.
