Man Says He Wants To Hunt, Kill Due to Drink
A man who was reportedly walking into traffic after midnight on North Tennessee Street said five men gave him a drink that made him want to kill three of those men.
Tavaris Eugene Major, 25, of North Erwin Street in Cartersville, told police Wednesday about 12:02 a.m. that "sometime" that day two African-American men and three men from Mexico gave him a cup of Kool-Aid and told him to drink it.
"Major stated that the drink must have been alcohol because 'it [expletive] me up!'" a Cartersville Police Department officer wrote in the incident report, attached.
Major, who was unsteady on his feet, according to police, allegedly became irate and said several times he was going to hunt down and kill the Mexican men he said gave him the drink.
Later apologizing for becoming irate, Major apparently almost got away with his alleged disorderly conduct.
"At this time a family member [of] Mr. Major came by and offered to take him home if we could write Mr. Major a citation and release him," the officer reported. "I asked Mr. Major if he would go with the family member so he did not have to go to jail, and he then yelled out, 'I'm going to hunt all night while I'm drunk and find and kill those [expletive] Mexicans.'"
Instead of going home, Major was arrested, charged with disorderly conduct and jailed. He apologized several times for his behavior, said he "didn't mean anything by it" and called the arresting officer "uncle" throughout the booking process, according to the report.
Allegedly Inebriated Woman Passes Out in Man's Driveway
Alcohol and other substances are suspected to have played a role in a Tuesday incident in Acworth that involved a woman so inebriated that a cigarette burned her fingers while she was passed out in her driver's seat.
A resident called police at 9:40 p.m. to report that a woman he didn't know—later identified as Kashonna Buila Fairchild, 27, of Acworth—was sitting in a running Pontiac G5 in his Rock Ridge Road driveway and wouldn't wake up, according to the Bartow County Sheriff's Office report, attached.
With the car in reverse and her foot on the brake, Fairchild allegedly was passed out with a burned out cigarette in one hand and loud music playing in her car.
Police attempted to wake her several times, and when they did so, Fairchild let her foot off the brake, causing the car roll down the hill backwards, off the side of the driveway and come to rest in a ditch.
Unstable and confused, Fairchild allegedly didn't know where she was or how she got there. She said she had been driving around trying to find her mother's house to drop off clothes.
Her fingers burned in appearance, Fairchild allegedly admitted to having consumed several pints of liquor earlier in the day and Xanax. Police alleged she had about 7 grams of marijuana and an oxycodone pill, which were found in the back seat of the patrol car in which Fairchild was taken to jail.
She was arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of marijuana, possession of a Schedule II narcotic, driving under the influence of drugs and crossing the jail's guard line with contraband.
