A Briar Ridge Road man said he broke up with a female last week and she has been harassing him. She called, saying she went t the doctor and the man had given her a sexually transmitted disease.

A Horn Lane woman said a drunk white male was knocking on apartment doors and being loud around 8:15 p.m. The suspect went into an apartment before police arrived. Police walked up to that apartment and the door opened before they knocked. They saw the suspect inside and asked the 28-year-old man to step outside. The man smelled of alcohol, his eyes were bloodshot, his speech was slurred and he had trouble standing. The officer asked him if he could go home and not be so loud. When he tried to go back to the apartment, the occupants would not let him inside. So he walked into an apartment three doors down, telling the folks inside "to be quiet." When police asked, the occupants said the suspect did not live there and they had no idea who he was. When told again to go home, the man started knocking on apartment door and opening doors. When he refused to comply with police, he was arrested and charged with public intoxication, disturbing the peace and disorderly conduct.

Anyone with information on any of these crimes is urged to call the Lee County Sheriff's Office at (662) 841-9041 or Crime Stoppers at (800) 773-TIPS.
