Richmond County sheriff’s deputies were called to the 1000 block of Hopkins Street on Dec. 31. A 33-year-old woman told them her 12-year-old son and her nephew, Adrian Hollins, were arguing outside when Hollins pulled out a weapon and waved it in the air.

Hollins then pointed the weapon at his aunt twice after she confronted him and ran after him for two blocks. She told officers she stopped because she feared for her safety.

Hollins is charged with two counts of terroristic acts and threats and possession of a handgun by a convicted felon.

I am sure that some people enjoy messing their lives up. Great fun to go to jail. Great fun to accomplish nothing.
