The following accounts were taken from reports filed with the Columbia County Sheriff's Office.
A Grovetown pizza delivery driver's car window was shattered by an Evans resident last Monday.
Thomas Lee Albert, a driver for Domino's Pizza, told the sheriff's office that he was driving on Gardenia Drive in Evans in his 1997 Saturn when he saw a man listed in the police report as Kerry William Brisley walk into the middle of the road. Albert said he attempted to go around Brisley when Brisley hit the driver's side window of his car and broke it.
Brisley told officers that Albert was driving too fast and he walked into the road to motion for Albert to slow down. Brisley said that Albert drove by him very closely and he hit the window to get Albert's attention.
Brisley was cited for disorderly conduct.
An Evans man lost more than $10,000 by someone cashing checks from his bank account.

The police report said three additional checks were cashed in Atlanta using Browne's name.
The checks totaled $10,500.
A man was arrested for probation violations after police say he gave authorities a false name and tried to run from deputies.
On April 27, Columbia County Deputy Sheriff Shawn Michael Merzlak stopped a vehicle after a passenger caught his attention, according to a report of the incident.
The passenger identified himself as Tommy Samples. Merzlak checked for warrants on Tommy Samples, only to find that Samples' real first name was Brandon and that he was wanted by the sheriff's office for probation violations.
Merzlak said that he was able to identify Samples by a tattoo of a 69 on his left arm.
He said that he asked Samples to step out of the vehicle and place his hands behind his back. As the deputy grabbed his hands, he said Samples pulled away and ran. After a brief chase, Samples was taken into custody.
