The Blotter: Rock on, Gold Dust Woman June 20 2007
At a recent Stevie Nicks concert at Chastain Park, a 44-year-old woman was sitting in a â€œno seatingâ€ area, according to Chastainâ€™s director of security. He asked the woman to move â€” but she refused. A police officer showed up, and asked her to move to an approved seating area. â€œ[The woman] became enraged with anger and began screaming and yelling in [the security guardâ€™s] face, who was forced to take several steps back,â€ the officer wrote. Then, the security guard said the woman had to leave the concert because of her behavior. The woman pushed the security guard and hit him, the officer noted. The officer said he grabbed the womanâ€™s arm, and she hit him, so he tried to handcuff her. She resisted by â€œpulling away, pushing off a nearby tree and refused to walk when told,â€ the officer wrote. The woman said she was injured, but refused to say what body part was hurt, the officer added. Medics arrived, but the woman refused treatment. The 44-year-old woman was charged with simple assault/battery and went to jail. (Proving youâ€™re never too old to get tossed from a concert. Stevie, maybe you can send her a signed T-shirt in the slammer. â€¦)
