Bizarre crimes from Atlanta police reports

AN OFFICER responded to a theft call at a tax-services business on Donald Hollowell Parkway. A blond woman said someone forced her to file a fraudulent tax return. She said her W-2 forms from Burger King were sent to a 35-year-old woman's house, and this woman said if she wanted her W-2 forms, she'd have to come with her. She said the 35-year-old woman brought her to this tax-services business. Her tax return was processed, showing her refund of $5,883. The woman got an advance of $1,845, pending IRS confirmation. The woman said she was forced to give the 35-year-old woman $1,300 of that $1,845 before she was released. The officer wrote, "[The woman] appeared to have a psychological defect, continuously repeating that she was paralyzed from the neck down, although she was walking and driving when I arrived on scene." A police report was filed.

A CONYERS WOMAN said she bought an order of fried liver at a restaurant on Ponce de Leon Avenue. "Upon biting into one of the fried livers, a green fluid was ejected, and a long green stem was left in [the] liver," a police officer wrote. "[The woman] advised she vomited repeatedly and went to her doctor the following day. "[The woman] further advises [she] has kept the liver for our reference and has reported incident to KFChicken and the governing board for food restaurants."

A WOMAN WHO IS EIGHT MONTHS PREGNANT said she was at a party on Gun Club Road at about 2:30 a.m. She said another woman hit her in the face with a beer can. The pregnant woman, 22, had bruises on her cheek and arm, police noted. She only knew the alleged beer-tosser's first name. Police advised her to take out a warrant.

AROUND 6 A.M., an officer responded to a call about a protection-order violation at a home on Sunset Avenue. The officer met with the caller, a 41-year-old man wearing just boxer shorts when he opened the door. The man said this woman broke into his house and stayed in one of his rooms. The officer wrote, "She was in the room naked." The woman said they just had sex and the man let her in. The officer asked the man: "Did you just have sex with this woman?" "Yes," the man said. The officer took the 19-year-old woman to a shelter on Pryor Street. According to the police report, the man has tattoos all over his body.

A 21-YEAR-OLD WOMAN said another woman showed up at her home on Pryor Street and poured gasoline all around her house and lit her porch on fire. She said this woman wants her boyfriend, and that's what the dispute is about. The 21-year-old said she put out the fire before any damage occurred. She said this woman fled in a black Ford Taurus with front-end damage.

??
ON ABNER TERRACE, a 43-year-old woman said her live-in boyfriend spit in her face and poured Clorox on her. The boyfriend is 18 years younger than the woman. She called 911, and the boyfriend was yelling and cursing at her during the call. Police arrived and charged the boyfriend with disorderly conduct.

??
AN OFFICER TRACKED A 2007 PORSCHE going 62 mph in a 35 mph zone. He stopped the Porsche on Glen Iris Boulevard and talked with the driver, a 34-year-old man. The driver said, "No sir, I was not going 62 mph, I was breaking down!" He also said, "... it was trip time!" The man said he doesn't drive over the speed limit because he builds houses and abides by the law. Eventually, the man was arrested for DUI. The man said he had Andrew Young's number and he had something for the officer. The man also asked the officer to call Mayor Shirley Franklin for him, 'cause they are friends. He went to jail. The black 2007 Porsche was towed away.

??
A 26-YEAR-OLD MAN said he was just driving down Ponce de Leon Avenue when his car started smoking. By the time he pulled over, the car was on fire. (It's a 2006 black Audi.) The fire destroyed the car. The Atlanta Fire Department showed up and put out the flames.

??
A 57-YEAR-OLD MAN said he asked his ex-girlfriend to leave his home on West Simon Terrace. He said the ex-girlfriend grabbed a knife and started cutting the wires on his television. He said he tried to stop her, and she grabbed his arm and bit it. The ex-girlfriend wore a black leather hat and jacket, and she has red hair.

AT AN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL on Henry Thomas Drive, an administrator said a parent cursed and threatened two teachers in front of an entire kindergarten class. The parent used the words "motherfuckers" and "shit" and threatened to kick their ass, the teachers said. Apparently, he was upset because the teachers sent a note home about his daughter taking items from other kids that didn't belong to her. The parent, a 41-year-old man with a mustache, was charged with disorderly conduct and creating a disturbance in school.
