Richmond County authorities were called to the 2400 block of Coleman Avenue in Augusta about 1:30 a.m. to handle a disturbance that involved a woman having a gun, according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office incident report.

An officer arrived and found Tamatha Glenn-Roane, 42, her daughter, Aciandra Demetrist Roane, 21, and another woman yelling at each other. The officer tried to find out who had a gun but the women continued screaming, and he was unable to separate them.

After asking Aciandra Roane to come down off the porch 10 times to no avail, the officer told her she was under arrest. She resisted arrest as authorities tried to handcuff her, and her mother ran up onto the porch, interfering with officers.

Police told Glenn-Roane to move away from the porch and arrested her when she didn’t comply. Both women were charged with a count of misdemeanor obstruction of a law enforcement officer.

The third woman in the altercation told officers that the fight stemmed from $20 she’d borrowed and had not repaid.

A gun was never found.

Stupid people like this just

Stupid people like this just need to have the snot slapped out of them. Arguing over $20 to the point of getting arrested is just nonsense, and yet people who will behave this way wonder why the majority of the rest of us look down our noses and just shake our heads. Poor has nothing to do with it.

I don't know why I'm surprised. The first thing I remember about Augusta after I moved here in June of '71 was a a guy killing another over a BBQ sandwich somewhere around Broad Street, on July 4th.

The good news is

... all those souls who earnestly bleat, "Where are the parents in all this?" have their answer: in the next cell!
