It took one hour, four deputies, two paramedics and a civilian to get a drunk man up the bank of the Mulberry River.
A deputy was dispatched to the river after the man’s son called and said his father, Danny Clyde Wade, 60, of 112 Edanville Road in Braselton, was too drunk to walk to his car.
The son said he and his father arrived at the river earlier that evening and began drinking. The son said Wade had about six beers before switching to whiskey. Due to his excessive alcohol consumption, Wade rendered himself incapable of climbing back up the bank to his son’s car.
When the deputy arrived, he found Wade lying on his back. According to the report, Wade was unable to speak clearly and was “unable to function any of his body parts.”
The deputy and Wade’s son attempted to assist Wade up the embankment, but were unable to do so since Wade was dead weight.
The deputy requested medical assistance and eventually Wade’s son along with six public safety professionals were able to get the drunken man away from the river.
Due to Wade’s intoxication, the deputy secured a warrant for public intoxication.
Alpacas attacked, killed
A Winder woman contacted authorities after discovering her two alpacas had been killed.
The woman said she heard dogs barking earlier that morning and went outside to investigate. She spotted three medium to large sized dogs running through her yard. The woman said she had not seen the dogs before and did not know who the owner might be.
After unsuccessfully trying to chase the dogs off her property while riding in her golf cart, she returned to her residence to get her dog. The woman said she was then able to chase the dogs off her property.
Later that day, the woman went to check on her alpacas and discovered they were dead. Both animals had head and leg injuries. The woman said she believed the alpacas had been attacked by an animal.
The alpacas were valued at $15,000.
Dog urinates, causes emergency response
A Barrow County Sheriff’s deputy was called to Emerald Pointe Drive to assist Barrow County Emergency Services personnel who were responding to a house fire.
Engine 6 was on scene when the deputy arrived and advised that there was no fire, only an electrical short in the garage.
The homeowner believes the short was caused when his dog urinated on the outlet.
Explicit text prompts complaint
A woman contacted authorities after receiving an explicit text from an unknown sender.
The woman said she received a text from an out-of-state number early that morning wishing her a good day and asking how she was doing. The woman replied to the text message to let the sender know they had texted the wrong person.
Later that morning, she received a text from the same number “containing explicit materials.” The woman called the sender’s number and told the unidentified male to stop texting her.
At the time of the report, no other unwanted texts had been received.
Stripper wife’s friends accused of harmful intent
An Auburn man believes his wife’s friends may mean to do him harm.
The man said his wife recently moved out of the house and took her belongings with her. After the move, he and his wife decided to divorce.
The man said he was driving home from work last week when he received a call from his estranged spouse. The wife reportedly threatened to damage the man’s property while he was at work.
The man advised that his wife works as a stripper and “has many friends who would like to hurt him.”
According to the man, his wife has made threats to kick in his door and damage his vehicles. She has also allegedly told their juvenile children that she wishes he were dead.
The man further said he was concerned that his wife would call police and accuse him of harassment.
The deputy advised the man to refrain from contacting his wife and, should he wish to pursue the matter further, take his complaint before a magistrate judge.
