Police Blotter: Teacher's “horse play” results in unconscious student

  • Friday, January 3, 2014

On Dec. 20, the Carvers Bay High School resource officer was sent to a classroom where a 17-year-old male student was on the floor being treated by a nurse.

The student appeared to be unconscious and the nurse was trying to wake him.

After a few minutes he woke up but seemed confused about where he was, the report states.

According to the report, the student and his male teacher had been “horse playing” in the classroom when the student hit the floor.

The teen also had “a couple of scratches on his arm” because of the incident, the report states.

The investigation determined the student and teacher “were horse playing with each other when this incident occurred and no assault was evident,” the report indicates.

House emptied while in jail

A 31-year-old woman from Hodge Drive said someone broke into her home while she was incarcerated.

The woman said she was in jail for one month starting Nov. 18. When she got out of jail she discovered her house was completely empty.

The woman said she went to her neighbor's house when only the neighbor's child was home and saw several things that belong to her inside the residence including a Christmas tree.

The woman did not say anything at that time but returned later when an adult was home and asked for something to drink because the water had been turned off at her house. She said her neighbor charged her $1 for the drink and was not allowed inside.

The alleged victim said she saw other things that belong to her in the back yard.

The neighbor told a deputy she was asked to watch the woman's children when the neighbor was arrested. She said she did go to the house and get the kids clothes and some toys. She said some of the clothes smelled bad and she left them outside and her mom went and bought the kids some new clothes.

The neighbor said Christmas tree clothes and toys was all she took, which were returned. She said other people were seen going inside the house while the owner was in jail.

The investigation is continuing.

Eight slashed tires

A 42-year-old woman from Apple Street in Andrews said the tires on her vehicles were slashed by a 39-year-old woman, also from Andrews.

The car owner said she heard noises outside her home Dec. 19 and looked out and saw the suspect running. The woman said she went outside and saw all the tires on both of her vehicles were flat.

She said the suspect had been following her around town that day.

The deputy noted seeing slash marks on all the tires.

Shot fired when man protects daughter

While deputies were responding to a call of an assault of a 63-year-old man in the 10100 block of Carvers Bay Road Dec. 20, they were told the suspect, who had a gun, had left the scene and was driving towards Pleasant Hill Drive.

The man's truck was spotted and a traffic stop was made.

A Smith and Wesson revolver was found in the man's truck and was taken by the deputy.

The man said he did not want to answer any questions without an attorney.

A witness said he saw the suspect pointing the gun at a 28-year-old Hemingway area man who was trying to leave but the suspect stopped him from getting in his vehicle.

The witness said he heard a gunshot and called 911.

After more words were exchanged, the suspect and victim both left the scene.

The incident reportedly began when the suspect was following a woman around that day. The victim is the woman's father who was trying to protect her.

The case is under investigation.

Car shot while being driven

A man said he was driving on Jones Ave. in Andrews Christmas evening when he heard a “pop” sound and then saw the car's back glass shatter.

Residents in the area said a 13-year-old shot the window with a BB gun.

Initial attempts to find the teen's parents were unsuccessful. The owner of the car - the sister of the driver - said she did want to press charges.

Gun waved at repo men

Deputies were sent to Whitine Lane in the Georgetown County portion of Hemingway at about 4:30 a.m. Dec. 23 because of an altercation that began when a tow truck owner was attempting to repossess a vehicle.

The resident said two men came to his house to steal his truck.

The man said as they were trying to take the truck, he let the air out of the tires to keep it from being taken.

He said while he was letting the air out of the tires, the two men “ran at him” which he considered to be a threat.

The man said he used his wife's car to block the tow truck so it could not leave the property.

The men from the tow truck said they were repossessing the vehicle from the bank. They said when they arrived, the homeowner “came out with a gun and began waving it in the air,” the report states.

The tow truck workers removed the vehicle from the tow truck. Neither party wanted to press charges.

Alabama man admits drug use

A night clerk from the Baymont Inn on Church Street called police Dec. 27, saying he was taking out the trash when he smelled marijuana coming from room 106.

The officers reported smelling the drug when they walked up to the door. They knocked on the door which was answered by a 56-year-old man from Alabama. He admitted he had been smoking pot and had a little left in his room.

Because the man was honest and the fact he was in town doing contract work at International Paper, he was not arrested, He was issued a citation and was released.
