The following accounts were taken from reports filed with the Columbia County Sheriff's Office.
A drive-by verbal altercation ended in a smashed phone and windshield early Wednesday morning in Evans.
Joshua Paul McKee, 19, told police that he was talking with two friends in front of his parent's home in the 4700 block of Rye Hill Court when a white minivan with three people inside drove by and waved what appeared to be a gun at them.
McKee said the minivan drove by many times, with the people inside yelling obscenities at him about his girlfriend.
Jeffrey McKee, Joshua's father, said he ran outside his residence to protect his son when he realized what was going on. As the minivan sped away, Jeffrey said he threw a cordless phone at it and broke the passenger-side window.
A Columbia County Sheriff's Office deputy called one of the suspects on his cell phone. The man told the deputy that he was looking for a fight with Joshua, but that he never had a gun.
The man then told the deputy that he wanted to consult his father and hung up. Attempts to call the man back were unsuccessful, said the deputy in an incident report.
Joshua singed a waiver of prosecution.
An Evans man said his neighbor hit him after he refused to buy her beer.
William Fred Hiott Jr. of the 4400 block of Hickory Drive told authorities that his next-door neighbor, Linda Faye Davis, walked into his yard about 7 p.m. Wednesday and asked him to buy her beer. When he refused and argument ensued, he said.
Davis began throwing items around Hiott's backyard garage and refused to leave when he asked her, according to the police report. When he called 911, Hiott said Davis became even angrier and hit him on his forearm with a broom.
When deputies spoke with Davis she initially denied the incident occurred, but later admitted to striking Hiott, according to an incident report.
The deputies contacted a magistrate, who issued a warrant against Davis for battery.
Deputies said Davis' blood-alcohol level was .163.
Joe Shmoe the thief
An Evans woman told police Tuesday that someone was stealing from her Bank of America account using a computer.
Nancy Carol Battaglia of the 4500 block of Oxford Drive said someone had been wiring money from her account to an Internet company based in New York.
Using the names Alicia Sunbeam, Jered the Loser and Joe Shmoe, Battaglia said someone stole $249.69 from her account via computer between July 25 and 31.
