An attempted drug buy ended in violence Sunday when the buyer and the dealer were cut with a knife and clubbed with a crowbar, a Richmond county sheriff’s report states.



Deputies were sent to River Glen Apartments on the 200 block of Telfair Street around 5 a.m. to investigate a complaint about someone getting hit in the head with a crowbar.

The complainant, Kashif Jackson, 27, reportedly said he was trying to buy some cocaine when the dealer became angry for an “unknown reason” and struck him with a crowbar. Jackson was treated for minor injuries.

The deputy found the alleged attacker, Jeffery Sams, on the 100 block of Walker Street, where he was walking around with a large white towel wrapped around his head. Sams said he refused to sell cocaine to Jackson, who then cut him in the face with a knife, according to a report.

Sams, who was also treated for his injuries, responded by hitting Jackson in the head with the crowbar, a report states. Both subjects, who were “very intoxicated,” planned to press charges, a deputy said.

Those River Glen conditions

Unpublished

Those River Glen conditions are being allowed to happen. Who is making the big drug bucks in Richmond County? I bet that outwardly they appear to be an outstanding law abiding citizen.

A drug deal in River Glen,

A drug deal in River Glen, government housing, say it ain't so. They have no money for food, rent, medical, etc... ALL of this is provided by the govt. BUT they have money for drugs?!?! SHOCKING I SAY! Just more incentive to drug test those who receive government assistance.

myfather15 and billyjones1949

myfather15 and billyjones1949 are both being truthful and yet, still, Patty-P still has a valid question. Some answers besides there is not enough room in the jail for them: because people keep buying illegal drugs and, those people and anyone that is related to them, friends with them, works with them, and/or socializes with them, once they have knowledge of the illegal activity and do nothing about it (such as reporting the persons involved in the illegal transactions or making sure that user get into rehab and/or off the drugs), are complicit and compromised. That's a lot of people. When will citizens understand that ignoring a problem does not make it go away?

billy and autumn I do believe

billy and autumn I do believe everything that myfather15 has said....what catches my attention with this story is the drug deal, but there's also assault with a knife and crow bar, and both were apparently publicly drunk. The combination of all of that and nobody has done anything wrong. I must have missed something somewhere in the story.

Autumn have you ever tried to

Autumn have you ever tried to help a person on drugs? It is a 24 hour a day project and has effects on your entire family. Everything with them is an emergency. I have and you are fighting a loosing battle once the use starts. IN jail, out of jail, in rehab, out of rehab, in jail, out of jail ant the circle goes around and around. Some get out of thge circle but not many.

I agree with jones.....It is

I agree with jones.....It is a 24 hour a day job---not pretty-causing many family problems---I have seen it soo many times in families near me------one thing that I have noticed is that MORE boys are having trouble than the girls....& once they are on the drug it takes a miracle to get off.

This story is straight out of

Unpublished

This story is straight out of Loony Tunes. A pusher and a junkie get into a fight over an illegal drug deal, then call the cops and there's no mention of any arrests or charges pending against either of them??? Just that the two felons want to press charges against each other?

What am I missing?

I can see the court case now........"your honor, the evidence will show that my client was peacefully and with no malice whatsoever, attempting to purchase his daily crack hit while offering legal tender in the form of American dollars, when he was viciously and violently set upon by the accused and grievously assaulted with a crow bar......"

What a crazy story.
