Newton Sheriff’s report 8.6.18

Published 9:36 am Monday, August 6, 2018

PRESS RELEASE — First part of the week was ok. The last part not so good. Let’s see what it was all about.

Sunday, we got a call reference to a self-inflicted gunshot victim. The man was deceased when we arrived. At the same time, we received a call of a man threatening to shoot himself. After officers negotiated with him for a couple of hours it ended good. Nobody hurt. As this report is being done, he is getting help. Great job to everyone involved.

We received a call where an actor was thrown from a horse while they were filming a movie. Reported head injury. I don’t have any more information.

We received a report where a camper and a pickup were stolen in the lake area.   Deputy White is looking into it.

We received a 911 call where a woman was driving all over the road. She also was waving a hand gun at the person who called in. Drunk women with a gun. Not good. We never located her.

We are serving a search warrant this morning. Hope to find stolen property. More to come.

Gotta Go. Thought for the week: No man has a good enough memory to be a successful liar. Ya’ll have a good week and if we can help just holler. God Bless.
