From Richmond Hill Police Department initial incident reports: 

Terroristic threats, public drunk: Police were sent to the T/A Truckstop around 9:08 p.m. Aug. 10 to check a suspicious person. There, they found the clerk standing next to a man who was laying in the grass next to the shop. He was rousted, and “admitted to being ‘very drunk’ as he did not see a problem with being passed out on the grass,” the report said, noting the officer called EMS because he wasn’t sure whether the man was diabetic or just that drunk.

The man, who said he was a truck driver, was asked repeatedly about his wife, who was apparently somewhere in the area.

Meanwhile, the man was argumentative and threatened to kill everybody, so he was arrested and put in a car.

“While en route to Bryan County Jail, (he) began to make threatening statements towards me,” the officer reported.

“(He) said ‘I will (bleep) you up if you don’t slow down.’ However, at this point I was getting on the on-ramp to I-95. (He) kept making threatening statements of ‘I will kill you… I will (bleeping) walk up there and kill you.’ I advised (him) that making threatening comments to a law enforcement officer is a felony.

Yet, “(he) continued after being warned by saying ‘You think this is funny?

I will kill you … I will kill you … I will kill you.’ I, again advised (him) to stop talking.” The man, 59, was described as so intoxicated the officer felt compelled to check on him throughout his trip to jail. “Upon our arrival … it was discovered (the man) had urinated all over himself in the rear of my patrol vehicle. Also, (he) had spit up snot and mucus on the rear seat as well. After (the man) was released to the Bryan County Jail, I had to decontaminate the rear seat of the patrol vehicle.”

Marijuana possession, reckless driving, etc: An officer on I-95 around 10:13 a.m. Aug. 8 clocked a black sedan going 98 mph and changing lanes a lot and managed to get it pulled over, where he found marijuana and a gun in the car. The driver and a passenger were arrested.

Suspended license, fleeing, etc: An officer clocked a silver SUV going 71 mph on Harris Trail around 3:25 a.m.

Aug. 9 and tried to pull it over. The driver took off, and after making a stop in a field by a cul-de-sac off Barnard Road, he then took off again and reached speeds as high as 60 mph on Barnard before stopping because a Bryan County Sheriff ’s Office deputy had partially blocked the road, the report said.

The driver, a Richmond Hill man who smelled strongly of alcohol and by turns would either “cry or be belligerent,” was found to have had “multiple active suspensions on his driver’s license) and had been convicted of DUI earlier in the year.

A Georgia State Patrol Trooper who came to investigate charged the man with DUI, and he was taken to jail. His vehicle was released to a passenger, two of whom were seen yelling for the driver to stop during the chase, the report said. Traffic offenses, etc: An officer on I-95 around 4:12 a.m. Aug. 10 clocked a car doing 94 mph near the Highway 17 exit. He conducted a traffic stop.

The driver, a 21-year-old woman, told the officer “she did not possess a driver’s license and her vehicle was not insured,” and a check showed that the car wasn’t registered either, “and the tag displayed on the vehicle didn’t belong to (the car).” She was given a laundry list of citations and her car was towed.
