That’s my oil!

On April 5, at around 2:40 a.m., police responded to the Perry and Matheson residence halls and observed a male student threatening other students by attempting to start a fight. The student appeared to be intoxicated.

When the police approached, the male student called back to the police officer that he didn’t deserve to live and wanted to be shot. The student also pleaded with the police to take him to jail. The police quickly notified dispatch and called for an ambulance.

Once the female EMT responder arrived, she attempted to take the student’s vitals, but was unable to do so because of the student’s rage toward her. The student, of Arabic descent, called the EMT worker a “white bitch” and kicked his feet at her. The student was then put into restraints.

The student continued to spout other statements, including comments like “the whites in America just wanted to steal my country’s oil” and “Bush was a bitch.” He also called his mother a whore. “[My] mother was a terrorist that helped blow up 9/11,” said the student.

He was transported to Grady Hospital.

420 throw away

On the morning of April 4, a police officer responded to the intersection of Tenth Street and Hemphill Avenue regarding a suspect who was seen wearing a white shirt and blue jeans, waving around a handgun. The police officer observed and subsequently approached a black male suspect. He saw the suspect throw a small clear plastic bag into the bushes. The suspect was ordered to stop, who then cooperated and laid down on the ground.

The police identified the suspect, who stated that he was just trying to get back to a party, and said that the drugs in the bushes were not his and that he did not throw them. Upon further investigation, the bag was found to contain marijuana. The suspect was placed under arrest and was transported to Fulton Country Jail without incident.
