A shirtless man was arrested at Diamond Hill Trailer Park recently after someone reported he was going through the trash in a dumpster beside the gas station there and trying to start a fire.
William Robert Roy, 22, 606 Mt. Zion Road, Danielsville, was arrested and charged with one count of loitering or prowling.
According to the incident report, when officer Klint Segars arrived on scene he saw Roy, shirtless, run out from behind the dumpster to the front of the gas station. He was ordered to stop and he complied. When asked what he was doing behind the dumpster, Roy replied that he was in an argument with a friend and that he was trying to be “a role model for small children.” He then sat on the ground and began to sing. Due to his unpredictable nature, Segars stood him up and patted him down for officer safety. He continued to ramble and talked about seeing God. A resident of the trailer park told Segars that Roy woke him and his mother up beating on the trailer. Two small sticks that appeared to have been burned were found beside a nearby power pole.
In another incident, family violence was reported last week after a witness called 9-1-1 to report that she saw a man strike a woman in a car in a parking lot on General Daniel Avenue South in Danielsville.
Tivaro T. Cooper, 27, 351 Farm Road, Colbert, was charged with one count of simple battery under the Family Violence Act (FVA).
Officer Jason Ring along with multiple other units went to the scene. Ring met with the witness, who said the victim was in her car blowing the horn at a man (Cooper) and he then got into the car and began yelling at her and struck her in the face. She said it also looked as if he struck a juvenile in the back seat. The child then got out of the vehicle and ran to the DFCS office. The child told Ring that Cooper struck the woman but did not say he had been struck. The victim also said Cooper struck her.
Other incidents on file at the sheriff’s office recently included:
•A woman in a trailer park on Grady Drive reported that she believes a woman she knows who oversees the park took her dogs. She said she left home and that when she returned to meet with the overseer she found her door slightly open and her two elderly white Chihuahuas missing. She said the overseer is the only other person who has a key to her home and that the dogs were her only company. Several residents in the area said that the dogs were outside when the woman left and were last seen heading up the road. The owner said she never lets the dogs stay outside. The officer said he searched the area but could not locate the dogs. Later on patrol, he found the woman walking up the road in a state of duress looking for her dogs. EMS was called to check her out.
•A couple reported that they were walking their dogs on leashes on Minish Road when a pit bull came running to the road and attacked one of their dogs. The man said he kicked the dog away, but it charged again, biting one of his dogs on the snout, latching on and refusing to let go. At that point, the man said he produced his pistol and shot the pit bull in the side. The dog let go and ran back to his yard at that point. The couple stated they have walked their dogs along the road before and rode horses in the area, but the pit bull is always on a leash. Animal control came to the scene and questioned the owner, who did not have current vaccinations on his pit bull. They removed the pit bull per the owner’s request.
•A warrant has been issued for an 18-year-old man who allegedly beat up his girlfriend on Carithers Road last week. According to the incident report, the girl stated that the two had argued with each other about cheating. The boyfriend then left with a friend, but when she left later she spotted his truck stopped in the middle of the road. He then reportedly beat on her window yelling at her to open the door. When she did, she said he choked her and put his hand in her mouth, then chased her around the car. He also head-butted her, she said, before she could back in her car and leave. Officer Gary Floyd noted that she had hair falling out, a cut lip and a large goose egg over her left eye.
•A man on South Railroad Avenue reported that someone stole a shotgun out of his closet while he and his wife were not at home. When the couple returned home, they found their grandson and a friend at the home and the gun was gone. There did not appear to be any forced entry.
