Man charged with sniffing paint

MOULTRIE — A man accused of huffing paint was arrested Wednesday after police received a report of him harassing a couple at their residence in the 600 block of Second Avenue Northeast.

Kimberly Canaca told police that the man came to her residence at about 2 p.m. and tried to sell her a box of food, and when she refused he became upset, used vulgar language and threatened to come back later and kill them.

When an officer went to the back of the couple’s residence, Jimmy McCall was sitting under a tree with his head pressed into a black bag, Moultrie Police Department reports said.

Police recovered a can of gold spray paint and several bags.

 The bag McCall had pressed to his face earlier still had wet paint inside and all of the bags had gold paint sprayed inside, police said.

McCall, 51, was charged with inhaling paint.

Sheriffs Office

• Xavier Anthony Bridges, 26, 358 Magnolia Ave., was charged Wednesday with driving while license withdrawn and leaving the scene of an accident.

Bridges was arrested after deputies responded to a report of a domestic dispute at about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Kioka Bowens reported that she discovered that the front bumper was missing off of her 2002 Mitsubishi Galant. When she asked Bridges about it he threw a bottle at her car.

Bridges told the officer that the bumper came off in a friend’s driveway that has a steep drop.

Because Bridges admitted driving and had a suspended license he was arrested, sheriff’s reports said.

Another deputy later found a gold bumper that was the same color as Bowens’ car in the 3800 block of Tallokas Road, sheriff’s reports said. It appeared the car had left the road and struck an embankment.

• Christopher Aaron Hall, 20, 2701 Fifth St. S.E., was charged Wednesday with possession of marijuana.

• Ray Edward Vinson Jr., 30, 1330 Hwy. 319 Lot 28-D, Norman Park, was charged Wednesday with two counts of deposit account fraud.

    Another holiday has come and gone as the month of July counts its days and we once again focus our attention on the home landscape. Curb appeal and maintenance requirements play an important role as choices are made and plants are installed into our landscapes according to plans. Any failure in responsibility towards understanding and satisfying maintenance requirements will definitely result in the potential loss of the new plants.

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
