Cobb County Police on Saturday arrested Woodstock resident Austin Reese Chadwick, 23, and charged him with driving under the influence, failure to maintain lane and failure to report an accident.

Why wasn't he also charged with hit and run?
Tom Barksdale July 23, 2014 at 03:45 pm
This is a confusing piece of shoddy journalism. Headline says off-duty officer charged with DUI.Read More Next sentence says Chadwick arrested for leaving scene of accident. Next, an unnamed off-duty Cobb County officer is facing legal troubles of his own. Next, Cobb police arrest Chadwick. Then, Cobb authorities reach out to Cherokee County officials in locating Chadwick. (Had he escaped?) Next, Chadwick called 911 from his home. Finally, Chadwick is booked into the Cobb County jail. (Second time?) Anyone want to make sense of this hodgepodge?

eavesdropping " A person commits the crime of criminal eavesdropping if he intentionally usesRead More any device to eavesdrop, whether or not he is present at the time. And it takes place where one may reasonably expect to be safe from casual or hostile intrusion or surveillance. I would say you should feel safe in a Kroger from such recordings.

I used to work with this guy at CryoLife in Kennesaw...he was a colossal pretentious jerk. KharmaRead More came knocking for him.

These are the many end results when we devalue human life.
David Montgomery July 18, 2014 at 12:59 pm
This is one of the many end results we are faced with today, because we - as a nation - decided toRead More devalue human life years ago. And just think, with every passing year it will continue to get worse.

My goodness Pam J. Sorry for hurting your feelings but leaving children in a car without properRead More ventilation is just plain idiotic on this parents part. Sure we can say she is wrong but her dumb, stupid, ignorant azz would not sit in a hot car herself. So let's call her for what she is and you can't stand the truth about this mothers actions then you need evaluating. She almost risked killing those children and you worrying about personal attacks being made on the mother.....
alan donahue July 18, 2014 at 02:59 pm
Marinela and Dame should be locked in a car with Enrique Iglesias. No one agrees with your terribleRead More ideas and opinions. You deserve to be punished for such wrongheaded, ideological antitethetical impossiblenessism.
Debi Dugger July 18, 2014 at 03:07 pm
Dame...no one should have to "teach" a parent not to leave kids locked in a hot car!! TheRead More schools are not responsible for everything!!!

alan donahue July 13, 2014 at 10:15 am
This just proves that people are actually jealous of Justin Harris and that is why he is beingRead More attacked in the media. It is better jealously. The people of Georgia support you Justin Harris! Do not give up in the face of these lies!

It looks like this woman saved herself from a vicious attacker. The odds for a victim's survival goRead More down drastically if the criminal drives off with them in the car. It's a good thing she was not afraid of grabbing that weapon and using it in self defense. Good job!
