Area lawmen make several arrests, investigate assaults

MOULTRIE — Deputies filed no charges in a series of events that resulted in a fist fight and breaking of an auto window that caused shards of glass to strike a toddler.

The incident started at about 7:45 p.m. Thursday when Brandi and Danny Dangar, of the 700 block of Bobby Taylor Road, were driving near their residence, Colquitt County Sheriff’s Office reports said.

Brandi Dangar reported that while in a 2002 Toyota Tacoma they were stopped in the 1200 block by Johnny Ray Walker. Walker claimed they had struck his dog earlier in the day and an argument with Danny Dangar ensued that ended with Walker hitting and breaking a window of the pickup truck.

A 1-year-old child in the back seat received cuts when hit by pieces of flying glass, sheriff’s reports said.

After the Dangars returned home, Billy Andrew Weeks of Lake Park, the toddler’s father, got into the truck and drove back to Walker’s residence, the reports said.

Walker’s mother, Pam Tucker, reported that Weeks came onto their property and started a fight with Walker.

She told the officer she did not see the earlier incident.

After speaking TO everyone involved, sheriff’s reports said, all agreed not to pursue criminal charges, and no one involved wanted medical attention.

Walker and Weeks both had injuries to their faces, sheriff’s reports said. Walker and Tucker agreed to repair the truck.

In other assaults:

• Victor Salazar, 359 Willow Drive, reported Wednesday that a male acquaintance hit him in the mouth.

No. That baby is alive, no matter how horrible its manner of conception.
Yes. It's wrong to force a woman to carry the child of her rapist.
Abortion is a private matter and should be legal for everyone.
