MILLEDGEVILLE — Criminal Damage to Property

An officer was dispatched to a South Wayne Street address at approximately 2:53 a.m. Aug. 17 in reference to criminal damage to property. The complainant stated that she picked up two men in her cab around the area of South Jackson Street and West Greene Street. The two men wanted to go to the lake, but did not want to pay the $30 cab fee. They attempted to negotiate a lower fee with the cab driver. When she refused to lower the rate, the two men became angry and began yelling obscenities. After looking for an officer downtown, one of the men in the front seat of the cab opened the door and jumped out. The other, who was in the back seat, pulled on the door handle so hard that it broke off.
