An officer reported that a 37-year-old woman who lives on McDaniel Street "has a history of calling 911 to report complaints of loud music in the neighborhood. I have answered several of these calls and have never found a reasonable concern for complaints. I have spoken to several of [her] neighbors in investigating these complaints."

The officer noted that the woman had made "an excess of 20 calls" on the date the report was filed. "I informed the woman that her past, then present, complaint of loud music was not valid and I could not do anything about it."

Two days later, the same woman called more than 10 times to complain about loud music. A sergeant told the reporting officer that the woman would be charged for "abuse of 911." The reporting officer also requested that the woman undergo a psychological evaluation.

A 47-year-old man was at his home on Clifton Street when a man he knows as "Ant" came by to see him.

Ant said the 47-year-old owed him money. The 47-year-old replied that he'd already paid Ant the money. When the 47-year-old turned his back, Ant hit him in the head with an unknown object. The 47-year-old, who had been drinking, was taken to Grady Hospital with a serious head laceration.

Police found Ant trying to jump over a fence. Ant admitted to striking the 47-year-old, but said he couldn't remember what he hit him with.

A 17-year-old female who weighs between 250-300 pounds said she allowed a man into her apartment on Martin Luther King Jr. Drive. She allowed the man, whom she knows only as "Moo," to come inside so he could get a drink of water.

She said she went into her bedroom to lie down. Moo came into the room, struck her on the head with an unknown object and took her wallet.

The wallet contained $28 cash, credit cards and keys to her apartment. The woman suffered minor bleeding from the head and said she was very tired.

While on routine patrol at Wade Avenue and Wyman Street, an officer saw a cab parked with no driver behind the wheel. The officer got out of his patrol car and looked around for the driver.

He found the cab driver, a 31-year-old man, in the bushes with a woman.

The cab driver "had his penis out of his pants," the officer noted. " [He] advised me that he was urinating and not taking part in any sexual activity." The cab driver was charged with public indecency and urinating in public.

An 81-year-old man was at the Kroger on Monroe Drive, shopping with his wife. Two men who were looking for mayonnaise on the same aisle approached the elderly man. One man acted as if he got his foot stuck in the wheel of the grocery cart. He asked the elderly man to bend down and help him loosen his foot.

The elderly man complied, and while he was bent over, the second man allegedly reached into the elderly man's rear pocket and took his wallet.

More than $1,000 in charges were made on the elderly man's credit card before he canceled it.

On Renaissance Parkway at 10:10 p.m., an officer observed a 41-year-old man "with his pants and underpants down around his legs with another male subject." The man was charged with public indecency.

At the concession stand at Turner Field, an employee said a 28-year-old man from Charlotte, N.C., asked to purchase two beer cups. The employee gave the man the cups, but when he tried to collect the money, the 28-year-old said, "I don't have any money right now."

The employee got a police officer, and the 28-year-old was arrested for shoplifting.

A 24-year-old woman on Boulevard told police that she was angry with her husband, age 28, so she struck his mother's car — a white 2001 Dodge Stratus — with a pipe. She was given a ticket.??
