Rocks thrown
at vehicles

Several residents told authorities that someone threw rocks at their vehicles early Saturday morning.

A 45-year-old man said he was stopped at the four-way intersection on Blue Ridge Drive at the Lakeside schools at about 6:40 a.m. when a rock came through the driver’s-side window. The driver suffered several lacerations on his face. Deputies found no suspects. The man said he thinks the rock was thrown from the corner of Blue Ridge Drive and Fairfield Way, close to Blue Ridge Elementary School.

Three other motorists said rocks hit their vehicles at the same intersection. One rock broke a man’s back window at about 5:15 a.m.

The two other vehicles sustained body damage when hit by the rocks at about 6:40 a.m.

Another man said his vehicle was hit by rocks in the 500 block of Commons Drive at about 4 a.m. After the rock hit the vehicle, the man then hit several large rocks set up in the roadway, causing substantial damage to his vehicle.

Man arrested for stalking ex

A Grovetown man was arrested Friday after he was caught stalking his ex-girlfriend.

Adam Wesley Morris, 40, of Country Glen Circle, was charged with aggravated stalking. He is being held in the Columbia County Detention Center without bond.

Morris’ 38-year-old ex-girlfriend said she let her dog into the backyard of her Grovetown home at about 11:30 p.m. The dog started acting strange, sniffing around the gate and fence as it had done in the past when Morris had been there. The woman put her dog in the car and drove away.She saw Morris’ brother’s car parked down the street.

Morris has been arrested previously for stalking her and was ordered to have no contact with her.

Deputies found Morris in the woman’s backyard.

Man pulls knife in road rage

A man said that a fellow motorist pulled a knife on him on Bobby Jones Expressway. The 24-year-old man said he and his wife were driving near the Wal-Mart at about 6:20 p.m. when a man in a Chevrolet S-10 truck started yelling and showed them a knife. The man said he sped up to try to get away, but the truck driver kept following and shouting threats.

The man pulled over and got out of his car to ask what the truck driver wanted. He said the truck driver threatened to kill them. The man and his wife said the truck driver was holding a knife out the window and driving erratically. He left before deputies arrived.

The deputy ran the tag number provided by the couple and the deputy contacted the owner. The driver of the truck told the deputy that the couple cut him off in traffic and he got angry and started yelling and cursing.

He admitted to brandishing a knife, but said he only did so after the other driver got out of his car.

Furniture tossed in pool

A resident of Woodlief subdivision called police Thursday after discovering someone had thrown furniture into the community pool.

The woman said that three juveniles entered the pool area at about 6:30 p.m. the previous day and threw several lounge chairs, tables and other items into the pool, which was verified by a security video. The woman said the pool area requires an electronic card key to enter. The deputy visited the home the card key was assigned to, but wasn’t able to contact the owners.
