In his weekly news release, Watkinsville Police Chief Lee O'Dillon noted the following incidents:
- At 3:45 p.m. Friday, Dec. 28, police met with a Jackson Street resident who was concerned about a child visitation issue. The other parent, who lives in Monroe and had the child for the holidays, was contacted and the situation was resolved.
- Also last Friday at 6:23 p.m., a large deer leaped into the side of a westbound 1997 Ford Ranger on Barnett Shoals Road. The truck’s driver was not injured but one side of the pick-up was smashed.
- Much of the holiday week police spent supervising child visitation and custody exchanges. Otherwise, it was a very quiet week with police responding to 27 calls for service inside the City.
