▲ KIWANIS OGEECHEE FAIRGROUNDS — A woman said her juvenile child’s father asked to take the child to the fair on the same day she planned to take him. She denied his request, telling him he could take the child to the fair on his regularly scheduled visitation day. The man showed up at the fair the night she took the child, and kept “popping up” and standing near them, she said. She told deputies he was harassing her because he does this every year.

Deputies asked if the man harmed her and she said no, just sat on her feet. The man told deputies he sat on her feet by accident.

▲ SEED TICK ROAD — A man called to report a domestic dispute. Deputies on the way to the home saw a car in a ditch.
