Public drunkenness

July 10 – When the deputy responded to a call about a disturbance on Holly Hill Road, the offender was seen walking away from his mother. During questioning, "it was obvious that (the man) was in a grossly intoxicated state due to being unsteady on his feet, the strong odor of alcoholic beverage about his person and glassy eyes," the R/O said. The man also had difficulty comprehending instructions from the deputy. When the woman asked that he leave her residence, the man "became agitated and refused to leave unless she gave him money." The man was arrested and taken to the jail.



July 6 – A stolen vehicle was reported on Holly Hill Road. The man said his Ford F150 truck had been stolen the night before, while in Savannah. When he got home in the morning, around 6 a.m., he found his work truck, a GMC 3500 was also missing. He said he didn’t know if the two thefts were related, but mentioned his ex-girlfriend had a key to the truck and may have "taken his truck to get even with him." The man was given a case number.


Domestic dispute

July 6 – Police were called out to Zachary Trail in Ellabell after a domestic fight reportedly broke out. The woman said her and the offender had started arguing, "about the children," and she had started breaking some things. At that time, she said the man "bit her on her finger and she bit him back," the report said. The man allegedly then took off with their son. The woman admitted to having a couple drinks when questioned about the smell of alcohol. The deputy got in touch with the alleged offender, who gave the same story, and the deputy brought him back to the house so he could get some belongings and stay elsewhere for the night.
