From Bryan County Sheriff’s Office reports: 

Assault, etc: A Richmond Hill teen was arrested Feb. 17 after she ran away, was returned home and then told  deputies if they left her there “she will ‘kick her mother’s (bleep) and leave anyway.’’ Deputies called the state Department of Juvenile Justice and were told to take the teen into custody and take her to the Regional Youth Detention Center in Claxton. 

“Upon arresting the juvenile she kicked a deputy twice in the groin.” She also had to be restrained for her own safety, the report said.  

The teen faces charges ranging from unruly juvenile to terroristic threats. 

Information report: A deputy was dispatched to an Ellabell address around noon Feb. 17 “reference to someone having their foot run over by an Uber driver.” 

The report said the complainant, a woman, “advised that she was grabbing groceries out of the Uber driver’s car. The driver … asked if she needed any help and she replied yes. When (the driver) turned around to help her, his foot slipped off the brake and car rolled over (her) foot. (The driver) then put the car in reverse and  backed over (her) foot again.”
The woman told the deputy she “acknowledged the incident was an accident and had already made contact with Uber. (She) was refunded her money for the trip but wanted the incident documented because she was being transported by EMS to the hospital to treat the injury. 

She got a case number. 

Matter of record: A deputy was sent to an Ellabell address on Feb. 17 regarding issues with a man. On the way, the deputy spotted the man “standing in his yard waving me down.” 

So, the deputy spoke to the man “and he was all over the place as if he was intoxicated by some type of drug. (Another deputy) arrived on scene to assist. (That deputy) spoke to the complainant … at her residence. (She) advised she wanted (the man) to stop yelling. I told (the man he had to stop yelling. Deputies left the area.” 

Matter of record: A Richmond Hill man called 911 on Feb. 16 to tell them he was “stalking his parents and wanted police.” 

The man’s mother then got on the line and told 911 her son was on new bipolar medication and everything was OK. When a deputy got there the man said “he was stalking his parents and that he was going to hurt someone,” and added he wanted to be taken to jail.  

“He also stated he was psychotic and had planned to choke either his mother and father,” the report added, noting the deputy called EMS to come out and perform a mental exam. The man told EMS he wanted to harm himself and volunteered to go for a mental evaluation at Memorial. Deputies told the mother about resources available to help her and her son dealing with mental illness and financial assistance.
