Newton County Sheriff’s Report 3.18.19

Published 10:34 am Monday, March 18, 2019

Let’s see what has been going on in Newton County last week.

We received a 911 call from Dee’s at Trout Creek. Man said he had been shot. Everyone headed that way. He told the officers he was shot a couple days ago. He also said he dug the bullet out and now it was all infected. Turns out he injured himself and he had not been shot. We ran a warrant check on him and guess what, he had warrants. What a dummy.

We are getting so many calls about scams on the phone. Please do not send anyone money who has called you. There isn’t much we can do to get your money back. Everyday someone in the county is getting these calls. Please hang-up, don’t send them money.

Everyone needs to be aware it’s a violation of the law to burn tires. We get so many calls about this. Please do not burn tires. We have a lot of more important things to be doing.

We had a couple officers get in a fight with a doped-up guy. Took a while but good guys win. Bad guy goes to jail. Constable Lane said the guy was a soccer player. I ask him how he knew and Odis said he kicked me in the head three times.

We received three calls were three sons assaulted three dads. One was with a knife, one was with a vase and one was with a beer bottle (still full of beer). Come on guys, grow up and pick on someone your own age.

Gotta go. Thought of the week: I don’t want to be a genius. I have enough problems just trying to be a man. Have a great week and if we can help, just holler. God Bless.
