On 22 May 11 a New Matamoras resident reported
her granddaughter informed her that she and three other females
snorted a white powder at a slumber party the previous evening.
Questioned about the incident, the fourteen year old who had
the slumber party stated she observed people on television sniffing
a powder so she crushed half an aspirin. The teenager stated
she removed the ink from a pen and she and the other girls took
a turn snorting it through the plastic tube. When Deputy Sheriff
Mankins informed the juveniles’ guardians of the details
of the incident they declined to pursue the matter further and
elected to apply their own discipline.

On 22 May 11 emergency room personnel at Camden
Clark Hospital reported they were treating a domestic violence
victim. At the hospital, the victim, Jessica N. Knapp, age 30,
100 Edmar Avenue, Marietta, informed Deputy Sheriff Reeder that
she and her fiancé/live-in boyfriend were sunbathing
outside when an argument erupted over their relationship. Ms.
Knapp said after the argument ended her fiancé, Joshua
L. Thompson, age 28, walked toward their back porch, picked
up a flower pot and threw it in her direction. The pot struck
Ms. Knapp in the head, causing a laceration that required staples
to close it. Fleeing out a back door and into a wooded area
when Deputy Carr arrived at the residence, Mr. Thompson later
surrendered voluntarily. Mr. Thompson admitted throwing the
pot in the air in Ms. Knapp’s direction but claimed he
was doing so playfully and did not intend to strike her. Despite
his attempt at minimization, Mr. Thompson was arrested for domestic
violence and transported to the Washington County Jail.

were processed into the Washington County Jail:
Luis Torres Jr., age 20, 4154 58th Street,
