1 dead, probation officer injured in officer-involved shooting in Georgia

1 dead, probation officer injured in officer-involved shooting in Georgia

A person is dead and a probation officer suffered minor injuries after an officer-involved shooting in South Georgia on Thursday, authorities said. It’s unclear what led to the deadly shooting, which took place in Glennville, but the GBI was called to investigate, the agency said in a tweet. The probation officer’s injuries were not provided, but the officer is stable. No other details have been released. This is the 53rd officer-involved shooting investigation the GBI has opened this year. The last investigation was launched Friday after a Paulding County deputy shot a man who was allegedly threatening to shoot the deputy during a domestic dispute.

Woodstock man allegedly tried to take cocaine into SunTrust Park for Braves game

Woodstock man allegedly tried to take cocaine into SunTrust Park for Braves game

A baseball fan got only one strike before being escorted out of SunTrust Park last week.  Dustin Luther Wilkes, 39, of Woodstock, is accused of trying to sneak cocaine into the ballpark last Wednesday during the Braves’ game against the New York Mets, according to a Cobb County arrest warrant. About 9:30 p.m., he was stopped by security at the right field gate and asked to take off his cowboy-style boots after setting off a metal detector, the warrant said. He complied, but he allegedly grabbed something from inside one of his boots and placed it in his pants pocket. Security asked for Wilkes to pull out whatever he put in his pocket, and he tried to hide it in his left hand while turning his pockets inside out, the warrant said. He eventually showed a baggie filled with a white powder, which authorities said was cocaine. He was then arrested on a felony possession of cocaine charge. It’s unclear how much of the substance he allegedly possessed. He was released from the Cobb County jail Thursday morning on a $3,520 bond, jail records show. In other news:

Democrats backing impeachment steadily rising in House Back in their home districts on an extended summer break, the drip-drip sound Democrats hear is not coming from the watering the plants, but rather from the halls of the Congress, where more and more Democratic members of the House are publicly announcing their support for impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump. A flurry of announcements were made on Thursday, as a series of Democrats said they would back an impeachment inquiry by the House Judiciary Committee, bringing the total number to 135 - more than a majority of Democrats in the House. 'I cannot ignore the call to defend our institutions, to safeguard our democratic norms, and to stand up for our democracy,' said Rep. Mark Takano (D-CA) on Thursday afternoon. A few hours earlier, Rep. William Keating of Massachusetts told his Bay State constituents that the Mueller Report left too many unanswered questions about the President, accusing the White House of stonewalling legitimate Congressional oversight. 'No person in America is above the law, including the President of the United States,' said Rep. Lauren Underwood, a freshman Democrat from Illinois. 'I support moving forward with an impeachment inquiry, which will continue to uncover the facts for the American people and hold this president accountable,' said Rep. Ben Ray Lujan (D-NM), the fourth ranking Democrat in the House.  'This is not a position I’ve reached lightly,' Lujan said earlier this week. When Democrats left town four weeks ago for their six week summer break, the number of lawmakers endorsing the start of an impeachment idea was nowhere near 100. But it's been creeping up on almost a daily basis - and more lawmakers seem likely to join in the weeks ahead.
