> He also didn’t leave a tip: A man at a Stone Mountain Waffle House used the old create-a-distraction ploy to skip out on his check. Unprovoked, the man stood up and began cursing at a woman customer. “I got mine in the car,” he said, according to the police report, believed to be a threat that he was going to get a gun. He left the restaurant, got into his car and drove away. He left an unpaid bill of $12.51.
> Another case of ‘not my drugs’: It seems pretty common when somebody gets caught with drugs, the explanation is that the drugs are somebody else’s. After a makeup bag containing amphetamine and diazepam pills was found by police in her car, a Buford woman who was stopped for driving with her lights off told police it wasn’t her bag (nor drugs). She said, “she knew [the bag’s owner] was a drug dealer and believed these pills belonged to her," the officer noted in the arrest report. The police didn’t buy it.
> Pastor arrested by mistake: A pastor from Cumming was pulled over at gunpoint and cuffed by police who suspected he was an armed robber. The pastor and two friends had been at a Roswell gun range, and one of them left a gun on top of the car by mistake. That prompted a witness to call police with concern, which led to the mistaken identity.
> Not what the Good Book says: A Conyers man, approached by two men posing as men of the cloth, was scammed out of $1,600 when they offered to bless his money. The two men said they were South African pastors when they asked for a donation and told the man they wanted to bless his cash. They handed him a folder he thought contained his money, but it was empty.
> Those kinds of brownies: Ten Dacula High School students face disciplinary actions after one of them brought marijuana-laced brownies to school and shared them with classmates.
> Blame it on the brother: A man questioned by a deputy with the Barrow County Sheriff's Officetold the officer he wasn’t the driver of the stalled car in the parking lot at an industrial park. It was his brother, who he said was away getting tools to fix the car. But when the deputy asked the passenger about the driver, the passenger said, “He was of course” while pointing at the man. The brother had not even been with them. The man admitted he lied. He was cited for driving with a suspended license.
