Sister uses pepper spray on brother
A Grovetown woman said she sprayed her brother with pepper spray early Thursday because he attacked her.
The 22-year-old woman said her brother was upset at about 2 a.m. over a Twitter post and confronted her. Their mother tried to break up the fight, but the woman said her brother went around their mother and started hitting her. He then kicked and choked her.
The mother tried again to separate the fighting siblings, but the woman said her brother hit her with a child safety seat. She sprayed pepper spray in her brother’s face.
The woman’s brother said they argued, but said the two were exchanging blows until she pepper sprayed him.
The siblings’ mother confirmed her daughter’s account.
Woman claims son’s paycheck taken by forger
A woman said Wednesday that someone cashed her son’s paycheck.
The woman said she took her 21-year-old son to pick up his last paycheck from Southern Siding and Window on Bobby Jones Expressway. An employee said his paycheck couldn’t be found. She contacted the company a few days later and was told that his check was picked up and cashed. She was given a copy of the check, which showed someone signed her son’s check and cashed it at the Walmart on Bobby Jones Expressway.
The woman’s son, who was in a rehabilitation facility, confirmed the signature wasn’t his and that he never picked up the check.
