A husband and wife were arguing. “He stated that he told her that he did not want to fight and went upstairs,” a Bibb sheriff’s report of a Dec. 9 incident on Brookstone Court noted. “He stated that (his wife) followed him upstairs yelling and screaming and pulled out a baseball bat and hit him twice in the left arm with the bat.” The wife, 60, told a similar story and was arrested for battery. She said the argument began because her husband, 61, “wouldn’t do anything around the house.”
Just the facts, officer: A Bibb deputy was sent to check on a man and woman calling each other names at a check-cashing store in the 3300 block of Mercer University Drive. The deputy, in his report on the Dec. 2 matter, wrote: “As I was attempting to de-escalate the situation, (the woman) stated that, since I was there, she was now going to call the other party a name. She then looked at the other party and called him a ‘muther f-----.’ I found that this was meant to escalate the situation and would be considered inflammatory.” The woman, 41, was arrested for disorderly conduct.
It was after 1 o’clock in the morning when two men went into a Waffle House on Hartley Bridge Road in south Bibb County. A diner employee said the pair placed a to-go order, but that when their food was ready they sat down at a table and ate. The employee heard the men talking to one another, saying “they were going to have to wash dishes since neither had any money,” a sheriff’s report of the Dec. 14 incident stated. Several minutes passed and before anyone noticed, the men left without paying and were gone.
