The following accounts were taken from reports filed with the Columbia County Sheriff's Office.
Pair of arrests
A simple assault incident led to the arrest of two people on different charges.
Richard Alan Courtney, of the 6000 block of Minyard Court, Harlem, was arrested on an outstanding warrant stemming from an aggravated assault charge. Nannette Marie Day, of the 3500 block of Revere Place, Martinez, was arrested on a drug possession charge.
Both were a part of a group accused of threatening a Grovetown man Tuesday.
Timothy Human, of the 5700 block of Jaime Drive, told police he was threatened with a gun by his brother's landlord.
Human was living at the Grovetown residence with his girlfriend. The home was being rented by his brother, who was in jail, according to a Columbia County Sheriff's Office report.
Human told the landlord he would leave the residence by noon Wednesday, but she insisted he leave that night while patting a pistol she had in her front pocket, the report stated.
After running inside the home, Human told his girlfriend to call the police. He told her that the landlord was in the front yard with four other people, including Courtney and Day, telling them to leave, the report stated.
The landlord told police that she never made reference to a gun. She said that she wanted Human to leave because she was renting to his brother and not him, adding that the two had reached a calm agreement about Human leaving.
Before they were arrested, Courtney and Day gave police the same account as the landlord, as well as the other two people with them in the front yard.
Courtney and Day were released Wednesday on $15,050 and $2,550 bonds respectively.
An Evans woman said her home was broken into through her 6-year-old daughter's bedroom window.
Charlotte Ramage, of the 1100 block of Rivershyre Drive, told deputies someone entered her house Feb. 7 or 8 through the window and stole three computers and other electronics.
A police incident report did not stated if Ramage and her daughter were home at the time of the theft.
Women trade blows
A Martinez teen got into a fight while picking up her boyfriend's paycheck from a Martinez Zaxby's restaurant.
The 17-year-old girl told authorities she was sitting in her car at the Zaxby's, at 3039 Washington Road, on Tuesday when another woman started hitting her.
The woman was hitting her in the face when she kicked the woman in the stomach in self defense, the teen stated in a Columbia County Sheriff's Office report.
The Zaxby's manager witnessed the incident and told police he saw the women wrestling inside the car. He then told the women to leave the property, the report stated.
A deputy noted that the teen had light marks on the left side of her face, and the suspect has a mark on her stomach.
Sheriff's deputies responded to a fight between an Appling brother and sister Tuesday.
Mary Gay Causey, of the 6600 block of Cobbham Road, told officers she and her brother, who lives on the same block of Cobbham Road, got into an argument that turned physical when he slapped her.
The brother, 36, told police that his sister, 39, scratched his neck, but the man's father said that he may have done the scratching while trying to separate his children.
