Auburn Police were dispatched to a Honeysuckle Terrace home after an anonymous caller reported that 17 to 20 people armed with weapons were fighting outside the residence.
When police arrived, they found four men sitting outside the home. One of the men said his wife’s funeral was the previous day and that he had several visitors in town for the burial services. The man advised that some of his in-laws had become disruptive, so he asked them to leave. He admitted there was a disagreement, but refused to complete a witness statement.
A Barrow County Sheriff’s deputy went to the hotel in Winder where the in-laws were staying and interviewed them regarding the alleged fight.
The in-laws informed the deputy that nothing had happened and they did not know who had called the police. The in-laws also declined to complete a witness statement.
After speaking with all the parties, the officers determined that no fight had occurred.
