Bizarre crimes from Atlanta police reports

ON YATES DRIVE, a 43-year-old woman approached a police officer and said her ex-girlfriend had put the root on her, and she now had a snake in her stomach. The 43-year-old said she had broken up with the ex-girlfriend, who got mad and got together with her mother to work "voodoo" on her. The 43-year-old said several days ago, she felt something moving in her stomach and she saw a green snake in her stool. She went to the doctor, and he said there was nothing physically wrong. Then, the 43-year-old went to her ex-girlfriend's apartment to ask her about the snake, and the ex-girlfriend told her about the voodoo. Then, the 43-year-old said, she hit the ex-girlfriend several times in the mouth.

??
The officer went to the ex-girlfriend's apartment and found her bleeding from the mouth. The ex-girlfriend was sent to Grady Memorial Hospital. The officer arrested the 43-year-old woman, who admitted that she takes psychiatric medication daily.

??
A 21-YEAR-OLD WOMAN returned to her apartment on Lee Street and found a man and woman having sex in her roommate's bed. At first, the 21-year-old thought the woman having sex was her roommate. However, when the man and woman ran out of the apartment, the 21-year-old realized that she had never seen the woman before. But, she said, the man looked familiar. No suspects at the time of report.

??
AN OFFICER was sent to deal with a dispute on Merrill Drive. Several family members said a 26-year-old woman was on drugs and acting violent. Upon arrival, the officer noticed that there was hair gel all over the house and outside area. Another man, who was tipsy, said the woman on drugs threw a bottle of hair gel at him. (The man is her brother-in-law.) Turns out, he had gone into the woman's room and threw her personal items on the floor to further provoke her. Both were arrested for acting violent.

??
AN OFFICER responded to a dispute at a convenience store on Bouldercrest Drive. A man and woman said they bought a Little Debbie snack at the store. When they opened the snack, they found maggots inside. The officer examined the Little Debbie snack and saw the maggots. None of the snack was eaten, and no injuries were reported.

??
ON CAMPBELLTON ROAD, a middle-aged woman said she got into an argument with a 25-year-old woman. The middle-aged woman said the 25-year-old woman got mad and threw a box of Froot Loops cereal at her, putting her in fear for her life. A police officer filed a report, charging the 25-year-old with acting in a violent manner.

??
AN ALPHARETTA WOMAN contacted police and reported the following circumstances. She said she and a man went to a club at Underground Atlanta. "There, I had a few drinks and became a little tipsy. He said he wanted to go to a swingers club that we usually attended called Venus, which is located in Atlanta. When we pulled up in front of the club, I told him that I was sleepy and I wanted to go home, but he insisted that we go inside. When inside, I fell asleep on a couch, and when I woke up, I found him in another room with another couple participating in acts that he did not have permission to participate in. I was upset, so I yelled at him to take me home when he should have taken me home from the start cause I was sleep. He was ashamed because I fronted him out and while we sat on the couch behind the couple that he was fooling around with, he proceeded to pull my hair and he told me to 'Shut up, bitch.' He tried to shut my mouth by grabbing it with his hands, leaving scratch marks on my face.

??
"When we finally got to the car, I punched him because of what he did to my face. So, he said, 'We gonna fight now!' so he pulls behind a building across from Venus. There he begins to punch me repeatedly with his fists, leaving scratches on my right arm and a burst top lip. In self-defense and frustration, I retaliated by kicking him with my heels in his right eye and his back. I went for help from the other customers of Venus, but they really did not want to get involved, so they told me to just get in the car and shut up cause I will only make it worse.

??
"We left Venus and went to a nearby gas station where we argued and he said things like, 'I never loved you, you are a crazy, stupid bitch,' etc. After that, we finally went home and I told him that I was gonna call the police because I did not feel safe being in the house with him. I dialed from my cell phone twice and hung up because I was concerned about him, but he insisted that I called, so he dialed 911 on my phone and pressed talk so I had the police sent to the house. The officers said they could not do anything because they are Roswell Police."

??
The Atlanta Police Department filed a police report, charging the boyfriend with battery.

??
A MAN parked his red Chevy Impala outside his house on Bromack Drive, and then he left town for five days. He said while he was gone, someone poured sugar in his gas tank.

??
A MIDDLE-AGED MAN said he parked his green Chevy C1500 outside his house on Derby Drive. He said during the night, someone poured grits in his gas tank. He suspects his ex-wife.
