Congested Traffic at Fall Festival But No Serious Incidents, Police Chief Says

Watkinsville Police Chief Lee O'Dillon reports on the Oconee Chamber Fall Festival.

Though downtown traffic was congested throughout Saturday during the Oconee Chamber Fall Festival, Watkinsville Police weren't needed for any serious incidents, according to Chief Lee O'Dillon.

There were, however, "the usual calls of a few misplaced parents," he noted in his weekly press release.

O'Dillon also recapped some of the other incidents that police responded to during the week ending on Oct. 21.

  • On Thursday, Oct. 18, at 7:23 p.m., a 1991 Nissan pick-up turned left into the path of a northbound 1995 Toyota Avalon on Highway 15 at Barnett Shoals Road. Neither driver was injured but both vehicles suffered moderate damage.
  • A Concord Drive resident Saturday morning reported that overnight someone had tampered with fixtures in her yard. Items had been strewn around but nothing was missing.

Watkinsville police responded to a total of 39 calls within city limits between Oct. 15-21, 2012.
