UGA student charged with obstruction

[quote][b]StarDragon59[/b] - hmmm, kicking in doors, just for underage drinking... ???
[/quote]

No, he kicked the door because of the obstruction, which is a high and aggravated misdemeanor.

And also, in the state of Georgia, while actively in hot pursuit of a subject, a warrant is not required to enter a dwelling. The Officer acted within the bounds of the law to apprehend a fleeing suspect. Sounds OK to me. Don't run from the Police... Don't drink underage downtown... and if you do, don't be surprised when you get caught for it.

Fight between Athens couple lands both in jail

[quote][b]CharlotteLadyGardner[/b] - Looks like Miss Lashawnda didn't learn from her 6/22/13 arrest. She was charged with DUI, Endangering the life of a child-DUI, open container violation, simple battery against police officer/LE Dog/Corre, and Disorderly Conduct.
With 2 violent episodes less than 7 months apart, one would question her ability to control her temper. [/quote]

WOW!

Please try and explain this one away, too! Better yet, get a good lawyer... sounds like you're gonna need it.

Fight between Athens couple lands both in jail

[quote][b]slickmadaintcha706[/b] - @Charlotteladygardner they did neither because they had no reason to..wasn't any alcohol or drug involvement with me..I don't know why they put that line in there like I said that about some weed..cause that's plain lies..smh..if you read it,it looks weird..I say something about the weed first?? But then he admits to him having weed and takes responsibility for it..where is my weed then they claim,I admit to?? Heck,I didn't know he had all that stuff on him either..which is probably why he was being belligerent and aggressive towards me..yea he had the beer but that was his problem not mine!! Accpd is sloopy

Since most ACCPD Officers have videos monitoring their back seats... have fun explaining your statements and actions in court... Sounds like you are going to have quite the time...

Athens woman charged with felony hindering for hiding husband

[quote][b]Heisenberg[/b] - So since the cops had to wait outside in the cold they charge the abused wife with a felony? What a bunch of aholes. And they wonder why they are not trusted in the community.
[/quote]

I trust them. I'm also not a felon, drug user, drug seller, or violent criminal. I have no reason to fear our local Police.

As the popular saying goes... "Don't like the Police? Next time you're in trouble, call a crack head".

Second arraignment set for admitted Athens cop-killer

[quote][b]E.J.[/b] - I still think he needs to be fitted with a shock collar to be employed when he needs calming down.

Someone correct me if I'm recalling wrong, but isn't this criminal ACTUALLY wearing a waist level shock collar??? ZZZZAAP

Athens man arrested after reporting false crime

All hes out is the bond... or he may just wait 'til he gets ORd... Let's be honest, the ACC jury pool more than likely won't indict this, let alone convict.

unfortunately that's not an option for our local Police Officers... they are literately forced to fight with these offenders time and time again.

Athens man clocked at 109 mph on motorcycle

[quote][b]woofie11[/b] - Unless the officer had his on-board camera rolling when he INITIALLY clocked the motorcycle, it wont stand up in court... It would be too easy to "clock" a motorcycle, turn around and try to follow it (while losing complete sight for awhile) and then pull over a motorcycle later on in a completely different location...Hell, you know how many different motorcycles are out and about? Not a slam dunk case by any means for the po po....Judge will toss it out.
[/quote]

Something tells me the Officer already knows this... I'm sure he/she will be more than happy to present the video at trial...

Wanted man caught after car stop in Athens

[quote][b]concerned citizen in athens[/b] - I didn't know that police kept records on who I associate with.
I better get a new set of friends.
[/quote]

If you are caught and released as much as these criminals are, I can imagine the Police database would have them all linked together from incident to incident like a gigantic spider web of felonious activity.

Watkinsville woman arrested for excessive speed

[quote][b]iluvfestivals[/b] - Speeding should not be an offense for arrest. Georgia needs to change its laws. Put points on the license and then suspend or revoke the license if necessary.
[/quote]

She was charged with speeding and reckless driving. Speeding isn't , driving in a manner that endangers human life is.

Athens police break up teen strip and 'twerk' party

Let's not forget the drug deal/robbery gone bad shooting murder at Tivoli just a few months ago... Swell place.

LAPD to officers on duty: Buckle up, it's the rule

[quote][b]Humbucker bob[/b] -
That doesn't apply to all the other basic traffic regulations they regularly ignore, such as using turn signals, stopping at a stop signs or lights, and texting while driving. [/quote]

Actually, in Georgia, Law Enforcement Officers are exempt from the "electronics while driving" law as well, as it is a necessity of their job.

Honda SUVs targeted for catalytic converter thefts in Athens

[quote][b]Humbucker bob[/b] - Why not arrest the buyers of this stolen property, that are paying $150 ea, for something they know is stolen, then selling the stolen property for a profit making them criminally liable? Then the thieves won't have an easy $150 every time they crawl under someone else's SUV.
The scrap buyers are just as guilty as the thief. [/quote]

I'd imagine its an issue of probable cause. There are no identifying marks on a catalytic converter that tie it to a certain person or car. I am no mechanic, but I do not believe they are stamped with serial #s or VINs.

Postman finds wallets in Athens mailbox

the intoxicated downtowner type have been suffering from robberies for years. It sounds like one of the robbers was just getting rid of evidence from his handwork over the past year. This is definitely news worthy. If nothing else it could show at least an area where the subject may frequent or reside.

Armed Athens felon threatens to 'kill all college students'

[quote][b]amj614[/b] - 1973! 1973? 40 years ago! What happen to forgive and forget?
But anyway, Nesbitt, leave your .380 at home.
[/quote]

pointing a firearm at another person while making threats is aggravated assault and would have landed him in the same position legally WITH or WITHOUT a prior felony conviction. I don't have his criminal record in front of me, but I'd be willing to throw down a $5 spot that with his great decision making skills and documented history that he probably has other, more recent convictions as well.

UGA students say they were robbed and shot at near downtown Athens

@MrCharlieW: GSP work state roadway accidents, they also have special units that search for impaired driver's. UGA PD patrol board of regents campus. ACC Sherriff's Office work at the jail and courthouse. ACCPD answer all 911 calls for Clarke County.

I've spoken to numerous patrol level Officers that work for ACCPD over the past decade, and they have all advised that they have little time to do much between going from 911 call to 911 call, but when they can spare it they do their best to prevent crime in their areas.

I read the blotter every day, just like I'm sure you do, and I see routinely that ACCPD are arresting serious offenders on a very regular basis.

I can't comment on the fact that these offenders are back on the streets within hours of arrest, as I am not a judge, and do not set their bonds...

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
