Dog Bites and Beer Drinkers: Just Another Day at the Grocery Store
Here are some of the stranger Northeast Georgia police stories of the week.
Nothing on TV? Head on down to a Barrow County supermarket, where there's always something interesting going on.
At the Publix in Winder, a man agreed to hold a chihuahua for another customer who said he was going in to claim a winning lottery ticket. Police were called after the man reported the chihuahua bit him on the nose and cut his upper lip.
The same day at the Winder Ingles, a man was charged with public intoxication after refusing to stop drinking his beer outside the store. He'd been sitting with another man and woman at an outdoor table.
Other unusual arrests:
- Police smashed the window of an Iowa man's car in the Hamilton Mill area of Dacula after he rolled up his window and locked his doors during a traffic stop and repeatedly refused to cooperate.
- An Oconee County deputy's Taser apparently misfired, and both he and an uncooperative suspect ended up being shocked by the weapon when the deputy fired it.
- A dad asked police to arrest his daughter after he caught her with marjiuana and she refused to answer his questions about it. The girl was charged with possession.
