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.”
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.”
