An officer was working an extra job at Kroger on Howell Mill Road. An employee told the officer that he saw a 43-year-old man eating donuts without paying for them. The officer went to the bakery section and watched as the man removed another donut from the shelf and ate it. The man then went to the register and paid for another item, but he didn't pay for the donuts.

The officer asked the man about the donuts.

"His reply was he thought they were samples," noted the officer. The man became very upset and told the officer to stop fucking with him. He became even more upset and said he would put a bullet in the officer's head and blow his brains out.

The man was arrested for shoplifting and terroristic threats.

A 24-year-old woman said she was on Oak Knoll Circle at 1 a.m., when a man weighing about 200 pounds drove up in a Nissan Pathfinder and asked if she wanted a ride home. She said yes and they rode around for a while.

During the course of the trip, the man said he was a police officer and flashed a badge and handcuffs. The woman said the suspect told her to suck his dick or she would be "going to jail, bitch."

According to the woman, she started performing oral sex on the man, but decided to stop because she felt like he was impersonating the police. She then ran from the car and called 911.

Police arrived. The woman refused medical attention but asked for a ride home.

A 75-year-old man was on Memorial Drive when a woman in a wine-colored dress and blue suede shoes approached him. She was in her 40s and had long, blue-gray hair. The woman said she was from another country. She said she would give the man $15,000 if he gave her some money to put with it, according to the police report.

The man gave her $500 cash from his pocket. He said the woman in the wine-colored dress, and another woman, who was wearing a flowered dress, took him to SunTrust Bank on Flat Shoals Avenue. The flowered-dress woman went inside the bank, while the woman in the wine-colored dress stayed in the car.

Then, said the elderly man, the woman in the wine-colored dress handed him a plastic bag. At some point, he discovered that the bag was full of paper.

On I-75/85 near 14th Street, an officer clocked a Nissan going 116 mph in a 55 mph speed zone. The officer pulled over the car and spoke with the driver, a 29-year-old man.

The driver said he was driving fast because he didn't want his passenger, who had drank too much, to throw up in his car.

But the driver was glassy-eyed and smelled of alcohol. He told the officer he'd only had one beer. However, his breath test resulted in a .129 alcohol/blood level. He got a DUI.

A 30-year-old woman left her home on Melvin Road around 10 a.m., and her husband left about an hour later. She came back around 2 p.m. for lunch and noticed the front door had been kicked in and debris was on the floor.

Then, she noticed her alarm and phone line were cut from the outside. As she was going through the house, she noticed that the dishwasher was on and almost done with its cycle. She opened the dishwasher and found her destroyed alarm system inside.

Each room had been ransacked, as the burglars turned over dressers and emptied drawers in a search of valuables. A small sample of missing items includes: a computer, diamond earrings, an engagement ring, a George Foreman grill and a brown leather sofa.

A 22-year-old Woodstock man said his gun and six rounds of ammunition were stolen out of his '99 Jeep Wrangler while it was parked outside a club at Peachtree and 16th streets. The man told police if the gun was found, and he couldn't be reached, to please leave a message with his mother, who lives at the same address he does, or a message with his drill sergeant in the Army Reserves.??
