Bizarre crimes from Atlanta police reports

A MAN WITH A CREW CUT has been attending a church on Hamilton E. Holmes Drive — so he can get videotaped footage of his mother-in-law at the church services. The man then calls police and shows them his restraining order against the mother-in-law. Then, the man says the mother-in-law is harassing him by coming to church.

??
The mother-in-law has been a member of this particular church for more than 30 years. The man doesn't stay for the whole church service; he just comes to videotape the mother-in-law and file police reports in hopes of getting her arrested.

??
Several police officers told the man that he could avoid the situation by not attending that particular church. The man said he goes to the church to see his children every week because he is only allowed biweekly visitation by the court.

??
Several witnesses — including the mother-in-law's attorney and an off-duty police officer — have seen the man videotaping his mother-in-law. He intentionally sits in the pew behind her to videotape and intimidate her. A police report was filed under "harassment by use of civil documentation."

??
A GRAY-HAIRED WOMAN walked into the McDonald's on Forsyth Street and demanded a sausage biscuit. The manager refused to give her the sausage biscuit, and told her to leave. So the gray-haired woman pulled her dress over her head, exposing her naked body. According to the police report, she then put her hand into her "vagina and anus area in her naked body." Then, the woman told the McDonald's manager, "Kiss my ass." She was arrested and taken to Grady Memorial Hospital. Turns out, she has received two prior warnings about trespassing at that McDonald's.

??
AN UNDERCOVER OFFICER was driving down Juniper Street in an unmarked car. He saw a woman in a red dress and high heels crossing the street. The officer wrote: "When the female looked in my direction, she turned and I could see that she pulled her blouse down and allowed her breast to be exposed to me and any other persons on the roadway. The female crossed the street in front of me and during the whole time allowed her breast to be exposed." The officer arrested the woman. "At that time, I found the subject is a male with female breast."

??
The man, age 43, has long blond hair. He went to jail for public indecency.

??
ON LUCILE AVENUE, a woman called police and said she needed to report her air conditioner stolen. She had last used the air conditioner in October 2005. In April 2006, she called a repair man to fix the air conditioner. The repair man showed up, looked for the air conditioner, and told her that it wasn't there. The woman told police that she can't get out of bed, and that's why she didn't know the air conditioner was missing.

??
A MAN on West Wieuca Road said he got a threatening phone call from a man he'd never met. The caller said, "I know you drink vodka and take Valium and say bad things about people, and you better watch out before something happens to you."

??
ON GRANT TERRACE, a woman said a man named "Soldier Boy" thinks she was involved with his house being robbed. The woman said she got a phone call from Solider Boy, who said, "You better move out of the circle," and that the woman slept good last night "but he got them."

??
No further information.

??
A 41-YEAR-OLD MAN said his mountain bike was stolen. He said he was on Monroe Drive when an unknown man walked up and stole his bike (worth $800). According to the report, the man said he believes the thief "is short" — but he isn't sure. Nothing further.

??
A BLOND WOMAN AND A BRUNETTE WOMAN invited an undercover officer to their motel room for an escort date. They said the fee was $500. They asked the officer, "Have you ever had two women at one time?" The officer replied, "No, this is my first time." The officer later wrote, "The two [women] gave me a body massage." Then, the officer arrested them for escorting and massaging without a permit. The city funds spent on the massage ($500) were recovered.

??
AN OFFICER responded to a call about a suspicious silver Volvo parked in a cul-de-sac on Rector Drive. A man and a woman were inside the car. The man was sweating and his shirt was open. The woman was sweating and wearing long-john pants. Her shoes were off. The officer asked the man for his driver's license. He said he didn't have his wallet on him. But police saw a black wallet in the car. Turns out, the man's driver's license was suspended.

??
The man said he was trying to have sex with the woman, but police messed that up.

??
The woman said they had gone to a bank, where the man tried to cash three of his father's checks. Police contacted the man's father — an 83-year-old man — who said his checks were missing. He said his son took the Volvo last night. The man also had one of his father's credit cards. The man, age 52, was arrested and taken to jail.

??
AN OFFICER was on routine patrol on Lakewood Avenue. He saw a middle-aged woman walking up to cars in the street. The woman looked over and saw the officer's patrol car. Then she walked away. The officer asked, "Why are you walking up to cars in the street?" The woman replied, "I will be honest, I was whoring."

??
The woman, age 47 with missing teeth, was arrested for "pedestrian soliciting a ride."
