Hometown News

A pause before the storm.

From the Moultrie Observer.
A Moultrie police officer on patrol at 9:08 Saturday saw a man, later identified as Xxxxxxxxxx, allegedly driving a Snapper lawn mower on North Main Street. The officer spotted a possible alcoholic beverage in the driver’s hand, so he pulled the tractor over, police reports said.

Two things.

I'm still in Atlanta.

The only given reason for pulling the suspect over was spotting him with an alcoholic beverage in his hand, not because he was driving a lawn mower down main street.

A good cautionary tale. Pour your beer into a paper cup, or keep it on the property and off the roads.

Could it be one of the other Williams clan?

That is awesome.

Hey Grift, I gotta ask:
Did you delete the name of the alleged perp out of professional courtesy, or was that personal?

And since when can you be charged with not having insurance for a riding lawn mower?

It was professional courtesy. although I wouldn't put it past some of my relations, it wasn't one of us this time.
