HIGH COTTON DRIVE – Complainant said after she closed on her house, she was still paying for a home alarm system. She said she contacted the new owner of the house, who she said told her he would not remove the system. Upon contacting the new owner, he said he gave the complainant a week and a half to remove anything she had from the house before he started re-painting the entire house. He said after that time frame past, he repainted the house. He said if the complainant wanted to pay to remove the alarm system and locks and replace the paint, he would allow that. She declined. Both parties were advised of remedies in civil court.

Complainant said the woman asked to borrow her phone and when she handed it back, it had two drops of blood on it. Upon making contact with the woman and man at East Georgia Regional Medical Center, the man said the woman was hurt while riding a go-cart and denied laying his hands on her.
