Atlanta resident Quinn Alexander Chrzan was allegedly assaulted and called anti-gay slurs while riding his bicycle on the Atlanta Beltline's Eastside Trail. Chrzan, who says he isn't gay, tried snapping a photo of the man making those derogatory remarks. "He ended up stopping jogging and saw me and confronted me. He kept calling me faggot. I asked him not to use homophobic slurs and he pushed me off my bike into a wall. He just whaled on my face for like 15 or 20 seconds," Chrzan told Project Q Atlanta. Atlanta Police are currently searching for the alleged suspect.

What's this? Fulton County Jail's locks aren't working properly? At least not well enough to prevent two prisoners convicted of murder from picking a lock and having consensual sex.

A shooting early yesterday morning on Auburn Avenue has left 27-year-old Atlanta resident Selemon Belai dead and four other victims injured.
