From Bryan County Sheriff’s Office reports:

 Damage to property: A Richmond Hill man reported April 2 someone vandalized his lawnmower. “(Complainant) advised that he believed his Toro LX 425 Twin Cam Lawnmower was ‘vandalized’ by an unknown party,” a report said. “(Complainant) advised that he was performing maintenance on the lawnmower when he observed a clear ‘gel’ mixed in with the fuel of the lawnmower. (He) told me that he believes that someone was maliciously putting this gel in his fuel tank but was unable to find a suspect nor did the cameras on the property observe anyone in the area of the lawnmower.”

The man “believes this incident is related to his lawnmower catching on fire several weeks before this incident,” the report continued. He got a case number.

Obstruction, warrant service: A deputy was sent to an Ellabell address around 5:40 a.m. April 1 “for the report of a domestic disturbance.” There, he “could hear a female yelling,” and a man told deputies “his girlfriend and him had been drinking and she shut the breaker box off and he did not want her to turn it back on for fear she would be shocked by it.” Deputies walked the 51-year-old woman off the property and told her she was wanted on an outstanding warrant. “(She) became upset about this,” the report said. “(She) refused to have a seat and stated ‘you have a seat,’” which led the deputy to tell her if she didn’t sit down in the vehicle he’d put her in the car.”

“(She) looked at me and stated ‘I don’t like you,’” the deputy reported. “I told her I did not care and to sit again.”

The woman refused, the deputy put her in the car and she kicked him the chest before he could get the door shut. She was taken to jail.
