State wildlife officers said they stopped two Hortense men Saturday morning for riding ATVs on Bladen Road, an unpaved county right-of-way off of Ga. Highway 99 in western Glynn County.
The ATVs were not legally equipped to be on a recognized roadway, but that was just the start of the problems for the two men, according to the agents from the law enforcement division of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. The two men, one 25 and the other 38, also were charged with DUI. Plus littering. They had left a bunch of beer cans and other trash strewn about where they had been partying near the railroad tracks, a DNR sergeant said.
Both men were taken to the county jail Saturday, charged with littering and DUI.
Among other reports filed with police:
100 Venture Drive: A woman told police she was blindsided by someone while walking between the Waffle House and the Parker’s convenience store — and she thinks it might have been an ex-boyfriend she had not seen in three years. The woman said she was walking back to the Waffle House “when suddenly someone attacked her,” according to the police report. She did not get a good look at the attacker, but she is pretty sure it was her ex.
100 block of Bishop Street: A man woke up, walked into his living room and discovered he had unexpected company. He told police that an unknown man “was sitting in his living room chair eating a pot pie that was taken from the refrigerator of the victim,” according to a police log. No further information was available.
Frederica Road: A driver ran the red light to get onto Frederica Road from Redfern Village right in front of a police officer. Police ended up arresting the man for DUI.
5000 block of New Jesup Highway: A police officer was following a Toyota RAV4 when it crossed the center line by half a car’s width and then sped up. The officer stopped the vehicle and arrested the driver for DUI.
4100 block of Norwich Street: A police officer witnessed a gold Cadillac SRX slip out of control, slide across oncoming traffic and slam into a fire hydrant. The driver was arrested for DUI.
