From Bryan County Sheriff’s Office Reports: 

 Deputies were sent to a gated neighborhood in South Bryan on the evening of June 13 “in reference to a group of males riding around the area causing a disturbance.” 

Two different calls were made about the incident, according to the report, which said the first caller identified a silver Lexus in which the occupants were “driving around the neighborhood onto lawns and cursing at children.” A tag number was given.
The second call gave the same tag number and said the people in the vehicle were acting suspicious. 

Deputies came up empty the first time they searched the subdivision, but a third call from a man who said he had video from the entrance and exit gates helped deputies ID the four people in the vehicle, all of whom were “juveniles.” It showed they came into the subdivision at 6:11 p.m. and left at 6:24 pm. at a “high rate of speed.” 

A second witness told deputies “this group (of either adults or kids) was observed riding on top of the vehicle, driving on neighbors’ lawns and making sexual advances toward her 12-year-old daughter.” 

She too gave deputies the car’s tag number. It showed the car was registered to a Richmond Hill address. Deputies checked it out and then went and met with the car owners, who were “made aware” of what had happened, and talked to the juveniles, who said they’d been given the gate code by a friend living at the gated subdivision.  

They were told not to go back to the neighborhood. 

Obstruction, public drunk, cruelty to children, more: A South Bryan woman was arrested June 13 on a host of charges after deputies were sent to a call in which she was “attempting to cut her grass, in a drunken state,” and kicked a deputy in the genitals before she was taken into custody. 

The report said the woman’s husband had deployed the previous day. It also said she had hit her children.
