Goats captured after parking lot romp
Public Safety Archives
Sunday, June 20. 2010
Winder Police were dispatched to La Luna Mexican restaurant after receiving reports of goats running loose through the parking lot.
By the time police arrived, employees of the restaurant had managed to capture two of the animals.
Animal control was called to remove the escaped goats.
It is not known who owns the goats.
Online matchup ends unsatisfactorily
An online date ended badly after a woman accused her suitor of assault.
A deputy was dispatched to a Gainesville Highway address after a woman called to report a physical attack.
The woman said she and her date met online approximately three weeks earlier. After the two agreed to meet, the man picked the woman up from her home in Gainesville and drove her to his house.
Before going to the house, the would-be couple stopped at a liquor store and purchased two bottles of vodka and “commenced to drinking it all.”
The woman said later, as she was sitting on the sofa, her date lifted her shirt and “tried to mark her up.”
When the deputy asked what she meant, the woman replied that the man had bitten off her right breast.
The woman then lifted her shirt and raised her breast in order to show the deputy a slight red mark.
The man admitted the two had been drinking, but accused the woman of getting on his lap fully clothed and riding him “like a wild Indian.”
After interviewing the very inebriated couple, the deputy decided neither story made any sense and that no crime had been committed.
The deputy gave the woman a ride to Waffle House and informed both parties the incident would be documented.
Clerk reports armed robbery, too busy to review surveillance
A convenience store clerk called the Sheriff’s Office to report an armed robbery.
The clerk said he saw a black male walk up to a white male and hold him at gunpoint outside the store.
The clerk could not advise if the white male gave the black male anything and that all the involved parties left the scene after the incident.
The clerk said the black male left in a green Ford Explorer and the white male left in a black truck.
The deputy asked if the incident had been recorded on the store’s surveillance cameras. The clerk said it might have been, but he was too busy to check and see.
The incident report was forwarded to investigations for review.
Woman calls 911 in attempt to discover her location
A Pennsylvania woman contacted the Sheriff’s Office after realizing she had no idea where she was.
The woman said she came to Georgia with several of her friends. After spending the evening at a club in Buford, the woman awoke the next day and was disoriented.
The woman said she tried to wake her friends, but they would not get up. The woman then began walking down the road and called 911 in order to determine her location.
While the deputy was talking to the woman, one of her friends arrived and offered to drive her back to their hotel.
The woman left the scene with her friend.

Oh, that was a good laugh! As always, Barrow County gets the prize this week for the most ignoramuses. Is there any intelligent life there? Jeff Foxworthy could mine a ton of material from this column every week.
