Only in Athens........Police Blotter Time

Back by popular demand........

We bring you greetings from "The Classic City"......Athens, GA

Thanks to the Athens Banner-Herald.......Here's todays Police Blotter.....

Store clerk injured saving cheap wine

A Watkinsville man is facing felony charges after he assaulted a Hull convenience store clerk over two $3 bottles of stolen Mad Dog 20/20 and a $2 bottle of beer, according to the Madison County Sheriff's Office.

Craig Nicholas Lakins, 23, was charged Monday with kidnapping, aggravated assault and robbery. Police said Lakins was sitting in his car and grabbed the arm of the clerk just before 9 p.m. Thursday at Diamond Hill Grocery, drove off and dragged him for 75 feet.

The clerk had confronted Lakins about stealing the alcohol, and when the clerk reached in to take the bottle, Lakins grabbed his arm, police said.

The clerk was taken to St. Mary's Hospital for treatment of several abrasions he got falling to the asphalt and a wound to his wrist that required stitches, police said.

Now that's..........one dedicated......employee!

Car not stolen, but driver faces charge

An officer arrested a 29-year-old Athens man early Monday after he was stopped because his car matched the description of a stolen car, Athens-Clarke police said.

The Monte Carlo was not stolen, police said, but officers saw a bag of marijuana in the car, and when they searched it, found another bag and a digital scale, police said.

Adrian Lynn, 29, of Lombardy Drive, was charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana, possession of a drug-related object and driving without insurance, police said.

Talk about bad luck.......this guy was in the wrong place...with the wrong car...

Stay tuned.......we'll be back next week....with more Police Blotters from this southern college town.
