When someone at the Riverside Drive Days Inn reported a pile of dog poop was outside Room 323, a maid was sent to have a look. Sure enough, according to a June 29 Bibb County sheriff’s report, a dog had “pooped” in a walkway near the room’s door.
The maid told the man in the room about the mess and informed him that he was not supposed to have a dog there. (Seems he hadn’t paid the pet fee.) The man, 29, then “ran up on (the maid) and bumped her in the chest,” a report noted. Then he cussed her and balled up his fist “as if he were going to hit her.”
The maid ran and called 911.
When a deputy went to the room, the man claimed he and the maid had “a verbal confrontation.”
Never miss a local story.
Another deputy tried to take the man into custody but the man bolted. He was caught in some woods nearby, charged with disorderly conduct and obstruction. His dog, a brown pit bull, was picked up by animal control.
As for the scooping of the pooch’s poo pile, the maid told The Cop Shop, “I think a maintenance guy ended up doing it. It was huge.”
