Purported Athens gang member pulls gun on police officer

[quote][b]The Oracle of the Athens Banner Herald[/b] - Amazing. At least his third trip to the rodeo.
Joe, if he was convicted of being a felon in possession two years ago (at age 19), then he must of had a prior conviction. Any chance of looking that up.
Hopefully the new chief will equip his officers with Tasers so this crap stops. Just no sense in our officers having to run these fools down, and then getting into fistfights with them.

Athens man allegedly attacks girlfriend, slaps child

[quote][b]OCCountry[/b] - Funny thing is not that he has a record, but that following a 2008 arrest, the Red & Black reported his job as a Clerk for the Institute of Behavioral Research. Maybe he should have been studied there instead of employed there.
[/quote]

That is incorrect. The UGA employee arrested in 2008 had a last name of Wilhite. Don't make assumptions based on the summary of a Google search.

I don't believe that is possible. Regardless of the final disposition of this case the fact remains that he did make the threats and was arrested for it. We don't revise history by wiping stories from our site, but will report on the final outcome of a case.

That information was blacked out of the police report because he is a juvenile

UGA RB Gurley falsely accused of assault in downtown Athens bar

@barryhollander: The accuser was not named. He was not charged with an underage alcohol offense because he was in his home when speaking with police and not in public. I don't normally name someone unless they are formally charged with a crime. I'm speculating, but it could be that he was so intoxicated he might have legitimately thought Gurley was the one who punched him, so that would not be a basis of false report of a crime.

And if you must post a comment please try to refrain from any snarkiness (is that even a word?).
When writing 3-4 stories and compiling a police blotter containing 5-10 items each and every day I am bound to occasionally write west when I meant east or up when I meant down.
A simple heads-up would be much nicer than making fun of someone for trying the best to do their job.

@lawq: The intersection near where the brawl occurred is named in the story -- Chalfont Place and Chalfont Drive. It also notes it happened around the corner from Westchester Circle, so I think that pretty much covers in which neighborhood this happened.

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the
