At noon, a woman parked her 2002 Lexus R300 in a Kinko's parking lot on Peachtree Road. At 1:30 p.m., she returned to the parking lot and found a note on her car. The note read: "Thank you for being so inconsiderate. I'm eight months pregnant. I had to walk from the back parking lot, due to your bad parking job." Also, the Lexus had been keyed. According to the woman who owns the Lexus, a Kinko's employee remembered seeing a pregnant woman in the store. The Lexus owner said Kinko's has surveillance cameras in the store, but a police officer would have to request to view the tape.

The 35-year-old roommate said, "I feel [the 33-year-old roommate's] spirit here, and I hope he doesn't plug up his television 'cause I will probably find his charred remains in the apartment."

The 35-year-old took off before police arrived. The 33-year-old provided information about an existing eviction notice.

In the past, the owner allowed dogs to die in the house, the son said. An officer tried to contact the homeowner and notified a homicide investigator. The woman was instructed to call police if the homeowner returned her message and wanted to enter the home.

An officer was working an extra job at a nightclub on Peachtree Street. Security guards removed a 28-year-old man with long black hair from the club.

The man was wearing "female-type short shorts and a black halter top with sandals," noted the officer. The officer told the man to leave eight times, but he refused. So the officer handcuffed and arrested him. The man started crying and begged the officer to let him go. He said he wasn't a bad person and had never been arrested before. Then, the man yelled and cursed at people walking by. He went to jail.
