A 63-year-old woman said she was getting into her car in the parking lot of her apartment complex on Landrum Drive. A man, who appeared agitated, approached her and said, "Get up out of the car right now!"

The 63-year-old refused to get out. She cracked her window and began praying out loud for the suspect.

The suspect then laughed and walked away.

An officer was working an extra job at a nightclub on Peachtree Road. A 36-year-old Marietta woman came to the door. A security guard asked her for identification, but she didn't have any.

She then leaned over and told the officer that she was "FBI."

"Say again," said the officer.

"I'm FBI, I'm an FBI agent," the woman said.

The officer said if she was a federal agent, then he needed to see her credentials.

Then the woman said she was joking. The officer asked her to leave. She refused and demanded to be let into the club. She was arrested for criminal trespass. The woman said she knew people that would make the officer's life hell.

A 33-year-old man in an apartment on Peachtree Street said his landlord left messages on his answering machine in which the landlord threatened numerous times to kill him and throw him out a window.

At 1:30 a.m., an officer saw a blue '74 Cadillac DeVille roll through a stop sign at the intersection of Perkerson Road and Langston Drive.

The officer pulled over the Cadillac.

"When I approached the vehicle, I observed and saw the male's penis in plain view. I told the driver to cover himself and asked for his driver's license, insurance and bill of sale," wrote the officer in his report.

The driver, a heavyset 19-year-old from Riverdale, Ga., was the only person in the car. His license forbade him to drive after 1 a.m.

He was arrested for public indecency, among other charges.

An officer responded to a disturbance call at an apartment on Roswell Road. The man who lived there said he let a 27-year-old man stay in his apartment for about a week.

A 48-year-old woman said her boyfriend came to her home around 5 a.m. and they both were drinking beer and smoking crack. She described her boyfriend as a 29-year-old man who weighs 400 pounds and works as a truck driver, but she doesn't know the man's name.

The woman and her boyfriend got in his car and headed to the store to get more beer. He reached over and swiped her purse. She tried to fight him, but he bit her on the face, back and chest. She hit him with a fire extinguisher and jumped out of the car.

A 22-year-old female employee at Phipps Plaza said she arrived in the parking lot at 9:30 a.m. She got out of her car, and a man who was jogging came toward her. The man was dressed in running shoes and black nylon shorts. The man started screaming obscenities at her.

The woman went inside to her place of work and called security. When she returned to her car, she found a long scratch on the door and a large gob of spit on the window. She had no idea who the man was.??
