Jan. 3, 2023

  • A 29-year-old Lilburn man was picked up on a warrant out of Dekalb County, arrested, charged with lighted headlights/other lights required, driving while license suspended after he was stopped for having one passenger-side headlight out. A run through GCIC showed that the vehicle, which belonged to a named woman, had no insurance. The male driver, however, was charged with the other violations and picked up on the warrant. Someone picked up his passenger, the vehicle was towed due to having no insurance and he was booked and transported to Walton County Jail.

  • A 23-year-old Loganville man was arrested and charged with public drunkenness and obstructing law enforcement officers after he allegedly caused a commotion at a residence, was combative with officers when they arrived and resisted arrest. He had been riding his bicycle when he stopped to ask if he could share the heat of some people standing around a fire in a yard. They welcomed him, but soon found that he appeared to be drunk and disorderly and became aggressive. Police encountered him “staggering around” in the grass, looking disoriented a little way away from the fire. He told them that the group had chased him down the road, had stolen his beer and threw his bike in the bush. A check of his identity led to an individual who lived on Pecan Street who had an outstanding warrant. The people around the fire disputed his story, however, saying they had asked him to leave when he began acting sketchy and hiding behind items. He then threw his bike in the woods, threw his beer, went to retrieve his bike and attempted to ride it, instead crashing into the guard rail. Rockdale County declined to accept him and attempts to arrest him proved difficult. Police report that he was “all over the place,” throwing bike and when he was eventually got into the car, he hit his head repeatedly on the cage and the door of the patrol car and continued once he was taken to the Gwinnett County Jail. He was also charged with obstruction due to the fact that one of the officers was injured and had to be taken to Piedmont Walton Hospital for evaluation and treatment of his injuries.
