MOULTRIE — A Moultrie woman, who reportedly undressed while walking Monday afternoon on Kendalwood Church Road, faces public indecency and other charges related to the incident.

Prior to law enforcement’s arrival, a Colquitt County Sheriff’s deputy said the woman, identified as Stephanie Rebecca Nichols, jumped in the back seat of a Colquitt County volunteer firefighter’s car.

Sheriff’s Inv. Shawn Bostick said that he first saw the woman, who was clothed at the time, walking at about 3 p.m. About two minutes later officers received a report of a woman in the area who was wearing only a G-string.

Bostick turned around and went in the opposite direction.

“I saw her jump out of the back seat of his (firefighter’s) car and she started running down the road,” he said.

Nichols appeared to be under the influence, he said.

Nichols was captured and put in a robe. When emergency medical personnel arrived she was taken by ambulance to Colquitt Regional Medical Center.

When Nichols, 29, 15 Pine Circle, was released from the hospital on Tuesday the sheriff’s office charged her with public indecency, public drunkenness and obstruction of an officer.

In other arrests:

• A 14-year-old girl was charged Tuesday with disruption of a public school, battery and battery on school personnel after she reportedly attacked a 12-year-old boy and hit a school administrator in the eye.

Sheriff’s reports said that between 8 a.m.- 9 a.m. the girl pushed a fellow student out of a chair at Colquitt County Achievement Center, 1800 Park Ave., hit him and rammed his head into a filing cabinet.

When taken the office of the principal, she reportedly hit achievement Principal Darius Dawson in the eye. The girl was restrained and law enforcement was called.

    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.
