An officer responded to a fight at a Domino's Pizza on Ponce de Leon Avenue.

The general manager, a 21-year-old man, said he'd gotten into a verbal spat with one of his employees, a 31-year-old man who was described as having strong body odor.

The general manager stated that the 31-year-old "called him several motherfuckers during the argument and that he threw a pizza against the wall."

The 31-year-old was charged with disorderly conduct and issued a criminal trespass warning.

A 35-year-old woman who works at a Bank of America on Lee Street left work at about 5 p.m. and walked into the parking lot.

She saw a man in a white Lincoln Continental in the parking lot. She said the man "drove up on" her and almost hit her.

According to the woman, the man is a security guard for Bank of America, but for another branch. The woman told the guard that he almost hit her and that the car was not hers.

According to the woman, the guard said she was a pretty woman and she should curl her hair. The guard also said she was not all that and then left the parking lot of the bank.

A 31-year-old man said while he was at work, someone ransacked his two rooms in an apartment on Ruby H. Harper Boulevard.

There were large holes in each of the doors leading to the man's rooms. Missing items included cassettes, CDs and about 30 Dragon Ball Z videos. Also, someone had poured beer on his bedroom floor.

The man suspects his wife's five cousins, who still live there. The man said the cousins didn't like him and he would take out warrants against him. The cousins denied involvement in the incident.

Two undercover officers were flagged down by a thirtysomething man at the intersection of Jones Avenue and Elm Street.

According to the police report, "The suspect asked what we were looking for. I replied that we needed $40. The suspect directed us to a house at James P. Brawley and Fox Street NW and stated that he would get the dope from his man.

"I handed $40 in city funds to the suspect and indicated I have plenty more to spend if the 'stuff' is good."

"The suspect, who had identified himself as 'Green-eyed Frog,' then exited the car and never returned."

A female MARTA bus driver ran up to an officer in a patrol car on Morosgo Drive and told him there was a fight on the bus.

A 28-year-old man with shoulder-length black hair was kicking a 42-year-old man in the stomach. The officer told the suspect to stop, but the suspect refused.

The suspect "then reached down and grabbed a long, black comb with a sharp point at the end of it and started towards me," wrote the officer in his report.

The officer told the suspect to drop the comb and get on the floor of the bus. The suspect said, "No, I'm not going to get on the ground and you can't tell me what to do."

Several officers arrived. One pulled out a baton and struck the suspect across the chest. The suspect then attacked one officer, biting his arm.

After a prolonged struggle, the suspect was handcuffed and taken to jail, where the comb was turned in as evidence.

At Hartsfield Airport, a male gate agent for Delta started boarding passengers on a flight headed to Tampa beginning with passengers in first class and frequent flyers.

A 55-year-old man approached the gate with a business/coach boarding pass. The agent said he wasn't boarding that section yet.

The 55-year-old picked up a telephone receiver, held it toward the gate agent's face and told him to call someone. The agent refused to call anyone.

The 55-year-old dropped the receiver on the ground. According to the agent, the 55-year-old grabbed him in a "bear hug" and pushed him into a wall. The agent struck the 55-year-old's face, causing his glasses to fall off.

A passenger pulled the agent off the 55-year-old and told him to cool down. An officer arrived. The 55-year-old admitted pushing the agent, but denied using a "bear hug." The 55-year-old apologized twice and said he was upset because the plane was boarding late. The plane was scheduled to leave at 10:05 p.m., but boarding began at 11:40. The agent wanted to prosecute.
